OK, I have walked by this building for years and would have never guessed that it was originally built to house 125 cars as the Paige-Jewett Motor Company. According to the documentation, the building still has its original elevator, designed to move cars between floors.
I also read that in the early 20th Century, Sioux Falls was the place to go when making an auto purchase – the first auto dealership listed in the city was listed in 1903.
As of 7:30 tonight, I’ve written three walking tour blurbs – only 3 to go. I can’t wait to go on this tour and read what others have written!
