Court records from 1874 indicate William Dinges was granted a license to operate an ordinary and to sell spirits in Edinburg. The 1870 Gray's Atlas of the Town of Edinburg shows that his business was operating that year almost directly behind the Edinburg Depot. Most likely, most of his customers would have been travelers and workers associated with the railroad.
