509 Lucado Street

This is the garage that accompanies the George Watkins house at 400 Madison Street. The Watkins were one of the first families in Lynchburg to own a motor car and they kept it in this garage. Previous to this, Mr. Watkins kept his horses and his Victoria carriage at the livery stable at Madison and Fifth Streets. According to an authentic ledger, Mr. Watkins purchased a 1912 Cadillac and built this garage to house it.
