    In the mid-1930s this brick building was a Ford dealership owned by Charles B. Menzie where my father once bought a used car. I do not know if Mr. Menzie built the structure or if it had another use before his business. There was a two-story, very large, wooden structure building on this corner in 1865, possibly on this lot. The business manufactured farm machinery and burned in 1879. Some information from History Of York, N.Y. by Mary Root. including a photo of the wooden building. Ruby Foote
