Collection Overview
Table of contents What's This?
This collection contains account books of Kleinke's Cherry City Garage and Lenox Hotel, together with papers describing the costs of Kleinke's new garage together with blueprints for the structure itself.
The Cherry City Garage was operated by Lawrence E. Kleinke at 170 s. 12th Street in Salem, Oregon. This collection of materials describes the financial affairs of the business between 1934 and 1952. During this period of time, the garage rented rooms--apparently in a structure identified in one of the account books as the Lenox Hotel--and storage space for vehicles. Many of the latter customers appear to have been Oregon state government agencies. In 1953 Kleinke constructed a new garage at the corner of 25th and State Sts. in Salem.
