Vinsetta Garage
Berkley, MI
The Vinsetta Garage opened in 1919 which made it the oldest operating garage east of the Mississippi River. The garage also sold gas but had stopped selling it by the 1960s. The Shell pumps that were removed recently were just for show. In 2010, the garage closed. These photos are from 2011. In 2012, the building was adapted for the Vinsetta Garage restaurant. The exterior and canopy were preserved. Neon was added to the bottom of the projecting sign which reads "Detroit Custom Eats." For more, see these websites: 1, 2, and 3. [map]
