A Brief History of American Garages

April 14, 2021

In the early days, American Garages were not what we use today. During the early 20th century, automobiles became a trend, and people started owning them as a status symbol.

However, it brings the biggest problem, i.e., parking their vehicle. Soon wealthy car owners realized the necessity, and hence a few of them take it as a business opportunity and provided repurposing carriage houses to the public.

Soon, this parking location was used to house horses, buggies, and horse travel paraphernalia that offered more business opportunities. A standard price for parking a small vehicle range from $15 to $20 per month. However, after a specific tenure, some issues arose:

  • Mismanagement of parking space
  • No maintenance
  • Additional vehicle parking
  • Already stored livestock alongside rented parking

This brings the vehicle owners into a dilemma of confusion. This dilemma gives birth to the personal parking solution, what we call garages.

This is just a glimpse of the American garage’s history. Check out this infographic to find a detailed history of American Garages.
