Historic District Downtown Building Inventory
McKeirnan Storage (Site ID 3)
Classification: Historic Non-Contributing
The one-story building has a built-up hip roof partially concealed by a parapet. Originally built with concrete block, the exterior has been covered with stucco. The front facade has a central metal roll-up garage door flanked by large single light metal sash windows. A pedestrian door (replaced) is on the east side of facade.
According to the 1896 Sanborn Fire Insurance Map, a livery originally stood on this site. By 1922, the Hadley Motor Co. Garage was on the lot, and by 1930, a machine shop and storage business utilized the structure. This machine shop was demolished when Chuck McKeiman erected the current building as a repair shop/storage area in 1949. At the time of the Nomination, the building is currently occupied by Blue Mt. Truck & Auto. The building is currently used as storage by Farm and Home Supply, located to the west.
