William Schupp Auto Body

Constructed in the late 1930s, this impressive 3-story brick building housed the William Schupp auto body manufacturing establishment (see 314 and 482 above). Not surprisingly, a Packard dealership was located next door at 504, as Packard owners often purchased custom body
parts for their cars. The building, which recently underwent a sensitive rehabilitation for office use, is notable for its Gothic style detailing and use of tapestry brick.
