When Chelf Motor Co. became Columbia Motor Co. - Aug 1928

2018-02-08 - South one third of 210 Greensburg Street, Columbia, KY - Photo from the collection of JIM.
There's a lot of information in the accompanying story, when L.R. Chelf sold his Columbia Chevrolet dealership and The Columbia Motor Company became the local Chevrolet dealer, which remained in the location until the dealership was moved to the former Overstreet & Rice in the 300 block of Greensburg Street. The building closer to town was occupied for most of the next two decades by Coomer's Store, now a part of Stotts-Phelps-McQueary Funeral Home. And interesting note, in 1928, the funeral home was Grissom & Patteson. The Grissom part of the partnership is now located at 200 Campbellsville Street and is Grissom-Martin Funeral Home. The Patteson lineage continues today at Stotts-Phelps-McQueary Funeral Home in the 210 Greensburg Street building.
