propane company history

Greenwell Brothers Propane was founded by Henry and Paul Greenwell in the late 1940's. Initially, the brothers wired houses for electricity in Spencer and neighboring counties. Soon, they started delivering propane in bottles and expanded to bulk delivery by installing furnaces to boost their gas sales. Over the years, they sold appliances, paint, hardware, electronics, furniture and flooring.

And, instead of Greenwell brothers, Greenwell sisters, Jennifer & Rachel (daughters of Henry) operate the business.
