Early Car Dealers
Captain Bevo and myself have been wondering about the history of this building. Captain believes it was originally Ghent Motors, with the showroom being on the corner (where City Drug is now), with this side being the mechanics shop. However, the recently revealed ghost sign does not really say that. Then again neither one of us can decipher what the first word says here.
Across the street was Markley Motors at one time. I also thought that the current city building at 281 N. College was connected with an automobile dealership as well. I do know that Pederson’s was further north on College Avenue until the early 90′s.
We would love to hear what others recall from the early auto dealers in town.
