Helms Garage

Helms Garage Located on Tanner Street in Petersburg, Helms Garage is one of several auto sales and repair facilities built in the county in the early 20th century, as ownership of automobiles became widespread.

Constructed c.1919, the building has changed little over the years. It is a rectangular, one-story building with flat roof, faced with light brown brick. An arcaded brick corbel table draws the eye upward. Large plate glass windows illuminate the interior.
