Inscription. In 1917, a modern Franklin touring car was delivered from Portland for the grand opening of the Hood River Garage. Similar one-story, concrete service garages proliferated throughout the Gorge after the Columbia River Highway was completed in 1916 from Portland to Hood River. The Hood River Garage served local automobile owners and travelers touring the new scenic highway. Later uses of the building included a grocery store, restaurant, and variety store.
