The Overland Automobile

One of the earliest car dealerships in Monroe was the Overland Car company. I found an ad for one of their dealerships in a 1915 newspaper. It was called George Auto Company. They included the below photo of their building. In the 1921 city directory the dealership was in the 100 block of north 2nd. I’m not sure this was the same building. By the middle of the 1920’s the Overland car was no more. You can read about the car company on Wikipedia here: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Overland_Automobile
