Motor Service Company Building
Rapid City, SD
The Motor Service Company Building was built in 1929. I don't know what make was sold here originally but it housed a Studebaker dealership at some point. The building is listed on the National Register of Historic Places. It was still being used as a car dealership in 2008. In 2010, the building was vacant. When these photos were taken in 2012, the building housed Paws Pet Bakery & Gifts. By 2013, the pet store had moved and the building was vacant again. The dealership signs remain.

Mustang Sally's
Deadwood, SD
Mustang Sally's, a casino and sports bar, occupies what is known as the Black Hills Motors Building. It was built in 1930-1934 for car dealership and garage. A Texaco gas station was added in the late 1940s or early 1950s. A number of other dealerships occupied the building. A Dodge-Plymouth dealer was here until the late 1960s. There were originally two bays but one was removed when the road was widened around 1980. In later years, a Sears catalog store and body shop were located here. By 1984, the Jolly Jug liquor store moved in. That was the previous tenant before Mustang Sally's. [night photo thanks Steve Silsby] [map]
