Welcome to LEE HI

Established in 1959, LEE HI Travel Plaza is one of the oldest truck stops on the East Coast.  LEE HI began as LEE HI Truck Stop, which was a Pure Oil Truck Stop, and was built and operated by J. C. Heizer.  The Truck Stop was operated by J. C. Heizer until 1968 when Leonard Pennington, who served as General Manager, purchased LEE HI from J.C. Heizer.  In October 1981, ownership of LEE HI Truck Stop changes again and Bobby Berkstresser becomes owner. 

On Saturday, October 3rd, 1981 , Bobby Berkstresser began running LEE HI with a staff of 9 employees and a facility that included a Restaurant, Fuel Stop, and Garage.   

On Tuesday, December 6, 2011, LEE HI Travel Plaza teamed up with TA, Travel Centers of America.

On Tuesday, August 22, 2017 IHOP opened up for business.

Without a doubt, many changes have taken place at LEE HI within the past 30 years under  the ownership of Bobby Berkstresser, and many additions have been made!
