W. I. Simonson Mercedes-Benz

Owned and operated since 1937 by the Simonson family, this former Packard dealership began importing a unique German automobile in 1957, making it one of the first Mercedes-Benz dealers in the country.

A 1986 fire destroyed the original Spanish Revival showroom, which was later rebuilt to match the original in almost every detail.
