Dewey Garage


The Dewey Garage is located behind Dewey Hall adjacent to the Quonset hut. The garage first appears as a brick veneered building on the 1906 Sanborn Insurance map as belonging to 34 North Prospect Street. [1] In 1926, the garage appears for the first time as a private garage. [2] It is marked in 1942 as a five-car garage now belonging to 32 North Prospect. [3] On the 1960 and 1978 Sanborn Insurance maps the garage is marked as storage. [4] Currently, the garage appears to be used as storage by the Outing Club.
