Stevinson Chevrolet on Ford Street, between 12th and 13th

The seller was the Steve Frederick Chevrolet Co. Frederick had recently sold his dealership to Chuck Stevinson, but Coors had no immediate plans to occupy the property, so Stevinson continued to operate on Ford Street until about 1970.

Prior to the Chevy dealership, that block had held a lumberyard and three houses.
