Branding Iron History

The Preston Development Corporation, comprised of various business owners in Preston, came together to build the Branding Iron. The doors were first opened in 1970. After just a few years the Branding Iron was sold to local private owners Harlowe Ibach and David Jeorg. The restaurant changed hands several times until it was purchased by its current owners in 1989. Steve Bahl, one of the four partners has been the manager and a cook since that time.
