Jake's On The Square

The amazing story of “Life is good” began in 1989 when Bert and John Jacobs, living out of their van, traveled up and down the East Coast selling to college dorms.

In 1994, they adopted the face of Jake, a beret-wearing, sun-glassed character with an easygoing nature and a big smile on his face, and Rocket, his trusty dog. They combined Jake and Rocket with the words “Life is good.” Jake is described as a cultural hero, an original, an optimist, a leader, a free spirit, and the company describes the brand as timeless, positive, colorful, simple, refreshing, inspiring, engaging, fun, wise, humorous and grateful. It laughs at risk and celebrates the opportunity to try.

Ellen and Terry Klinck decided to laugh at risk and celebrate the opportunity to try when they opened Jake’s on the Square. Since then they’ve been living the good life, because they do what they like and like what they do.

Drier's Meat Market


Visit Drier's and experience a trip to the past. What was originally a wagon repair shop, the building that houses Drier's Meat Market was converted to a butcher shop in 1875 by an Englishman named Alec Watson, who named it The Union Meat Market. Ed Drier, Sr., was hired by Alec Watson when he was only 10 years old as a 25-cents-a-week delivery boy. Ed was eventually promoted to clerk at $6 a week and, in 1913, he bought the store from Watson.

Drier's Meat Market has been recognized as a National Historic Site since the time of its opening in 1875, which means it has been in continuous use as a butcher shop since shortly after the Civil War. It has a pre-Civil War front, and many of the original elements of the building still exist, including the four-paned windows that pre-date plate glass. There's sawdust on the floor, old butchering tools and a meat rack with ornamental cows. The smokehouse that is used to produce Drier's famous hams, bacon and ring bologna (spelled “baloney” by Ed, Sr.) is more than 100 years old.
