On February 25, 1998, Common Grounds Coffee House opened it doors and began to offer coffee and rolls to those that wanted a gathering place to play cards, visit, and have a cup of coffee. Since then the business has grown to what it is today. A big thank you to all the volunteers and customers who have made this dream of twenty years ago become a reality!
