Firestone Building
Mount Clemens, MI
Farmington, MI
This Firestone Building in Mount Clemens was built in 1939. It was used as a Firestone Tire store, aka Ned's Firestone, until 1982. It was then used as an auto repair and transmission shop until 1992. The building remained vacant until 1995 when it was restored as a Community Central Bank branch. The interior was split into two floors at this time. The building housed a Talmer Bank & Trust branch when this photo was taken in 2011. By 2017, it was housing a Chemical Bank. It now houses a TCF Bank and the top half of the building has been painted black. For more, see this website. [map]
