The faded signs on this building indicate that it sold furniture but D. A. Bolton writes that it was built as an early automobile dealership. He notes that the service area was on the second floor and cars were lifted by a large lift that’s still intact today. After the auto dealership closed, it was a John Deere dealership for a time. The furniture business here was short lived and apparently the last tenant.
Rob White writes: The white building just visible in on the left side of the photo was once Chance & Hopkins Chevrolet. The “ghost’ of the lettering is still visible on one of the showroom windows. On the right end was a filling station that operated as a gas station until some point in the late 80’s and into the 90’s.
