Monday, June 16, 2014, marked the 40th anniversary of Goddard’s Auto Body opening its doors for business in Vienna, making it one of the oldest continuously operated locally-owned businesses in Johnson County.
Owners Jim and Lora Goddard, pictured at left, first opened the business in a small shop across from the city water plant on the south edge of Vienna. They relocated the shop in 1985 to its present location at 865 Old Rt. 146 Loop.
Jim and Lora’s children, Sam Goddard and Tracy Williams help their parents with the business, along with Bart Mighell and Keith Francis. An open house is being planned for a later date.
