This building was built circa 1928. Bruce Strowd moved his Ford dealership into this building from East Franklin Street.

In 1951, the Pritchard-Little Motor Company bought out Strowd's. In 1955, A. H. Poe temporarily moved his DeSoto business into the space formerly occupied by Pritchard-Little. (Pritchard-Little was Grady Pritchard and Crowell Little.)
