The Diamonds
Villa Ridge

In 1919, Spencer Groff set up a stand to sell plums from the family orchard where the Ozark Trail met the Old Springfield Road. A customer said it reminded him of a "Banana Stand", and the name stuck. He opened this facility on July 3, 1927 and name it the Diamonds for the shape of the property.
