Maxwell Dealership Building Built in 1913

Recommended Posts

This building in Wilber, Nebraska was built in 1913 as a Maxwell Dealership. I have an antique picture that shows the front of the building. The right side window was the garage entrance. The partial basement is reinforced with large metal beams that allowed for cars to be driven overhead. The building is actually for sale at this time for $55,000.

It's always nice to see old buildings like this saved and repurposed. More common in the rest of the country I think. California tears down eveything after 30 years.☹️

I'd say it's more common in any part of the country

that isn't under fast-growing development pressure,

Greg.  So in many small Pennsylvania towns, for instance,

a street view from 120 years ago may look very similar

to a street view from today.
