Inscription.  This building was constructed in 1927 as the home of Warren Chevrolet Sales, owned and operated by Edward E. Schmidt. Along with automobiles he also sold accessories, tires and gasoline. Born in Clinton Township in 1894, Mr. Schmidt moved to Warren in 1922 and served as a councilman for the Village of Warren in the mid-1920's. After the auto dealersip moved to Mound Rd., this building housed a grinding wheel factory, the Warren Equipment Depot, and, for over 30 years, Friends Ceramics. In 2004, the property was purchased and renovated for Coliant Corporation, purveyor of comfort and safety products for motorcycle enthusiasts.
