History of Hendershot’s


History of Hendershot’s

Greg Hendershot and his family moved to Greencastle in 1977, where Steve, Greg’s father, started working for The Banner Graphic.  Greg graduated from Greencastle High School in 1984, where he enjoyed participating in high school automotive classes.  Greg and his dad spent a lot of time working on cars together.  After high school, Greg attended Vincennes University and graduated in 1986 with an Associate’s Degree.


The original shop on Jackson St

Greg moved back to Greencastle where he worked for several well-known dealerships before deciding to open his own shop in January of 2006.  The first shop was located on Jackson St., across from the Monon Restaurant.  The first building was a small, 2-bay shop that was quickly outgrown.  Greg worked very hard to get the shop running.  He would diagnose cars during the day and work late into the night to do the repairs.


In 2013, Greg purchased the old Ford dealership on Indianapolis Rd.   It took a couple months of cleaning, painting, and new floors to be ready for move-in by October 2013.


The old shop was closed on a Friday at 5:00 PM.  With the help of lots of good friends, trucks, trailers, and muscle, the old shop was loaded up.  Doors were officially closed by 6:30 PM!  Greg and everyone at the shop appreciated all the help and still cannot thank everyone enough for their support of the business and the help they offered.


Hendershot’s Service Center is still operating at the old Ford dealership on Indianapolis Rd.  We are open Monday through Friday, 7:30-5:00.  We offer a variety of services and love being a part of such a great community!
