former Studebaker showroom
Mena, AR
This former Studebaker showroom was built in 1948. While many websites credit the designer as Frank Lloyd Wright, that is a myth. The National Register of Historic Places lists the building's architect as unknown. The building was used as a car dealership until 1962. The building has some restored Studebaker cars on display inside now. It is listed on the National Register of Historic Places. The building across the street shown in the bottom row on the right above was evidently also used as service and display space. It might have been built a few years later. [map]
