|Dunn Chevrolet Co.
|The Dunn Chevrolet Co. showroom was built in the early 1920s as a livery stable. Dunn Chevrolet moved to this building in 1941. This sign was from the 1950s and was there in 2007 when this photo was taken. Dunn closed in 2007 and, by 2010, the sign was gone. For more, see this website. [photos thanks Tim Ross] [map]|

|The Gerlach Motor Company was established in 1933. The company moved to this building in 1938. In 1962, the business became Staff Chevrolet. In 2005, it became Chuck Stevens Automotive. Since 2018, it has been Jason Pilger Chevrolet. [map]|
|Fowler Motor Co.
|The Fowler Motor Co. building had been built by 1945. By the late 1950s through the 1970s, the building housed Wilson Pontiac-Cadillac. It now houses Max Tool Inc. [map]|
|Edwards Chevrolet was founded in 1962. This giant showroom might be from then. However, the building is probably older than that. It had a Streamline Moderne, late 1940s look with a mid-century modern looking slipcover. Edwards may have adapted a former showroom that was here beforehand. These photos are from 2007. Sometime between 2011 and 2015, the building was completely remodeled. The plastic sign on the left is still there but the neon sign is gone. The shape of the building remains the same but it is now covered with silver panels to make it look like every other Chevrolet dealership. [map]|
|former Smith Motor Company
|The Smith Motor Company was operating out of this building by 1948. From 2009-2012, the building was renovated. It has housed Fire Stone Wood Fired Pizza & Grill since then. [map]|
