A. L. Davis Block

7535 Grandview Ave. and 5642-5630 Wadsworth Blvd. - In 1916, A.L. Davis, owner of the first automobile dealership in town, built the two-story building between Grandview and the alley to the north to house his Dodge Brothers and Chevrolet automobile sales and service business. There were modern apartments upstairs and a drugstore on the corner. The bricks were made at the Denver Shale and Brick Co. which was located at 62nd Ave. and Carr St. The northern sections of the building were added in later years as his success prompted expansion.
