1941

When garages first came on the scene in the 1910's they were an afterthought. A small detached shed in back of the home just large enough to fit the small cars people had only begun to learn to drive. American Garages is born...

In 1941, Lee Smith siezes an opportunity to start his own business. As the popularity of the automoble grew, so did the need for a place to store them. In 1941, 90% of all homes had no garage; some people had built a garage out back but it wasn't really much more than just a shack, big enough to fit the small cars of the time. He knew that the automobile would become even more important and so would the need for adequate storage. American Garages was born, a company that would build your family a quality garage that would last. As cars got bigger, so did garages, and rightly so. American Garages adapted and expanded filling the needs of American drivers to house their vehicles.
