Youngs Chevrolet Building is Demolished - 10/7/2020

The former Young's Chevrolet building is another Minonk building belonging to the dust bin of history. The building was constructed in 1935 on the site of the old Schlitz Opera House which burned down in 1934 and was the Chevrolet-Oldsmobile dealer in Minonk until 20 years ago. Since then the building was used to store antique furniture and became into a state of disrepair. For more information on the history of Young Chevrolet, click here.
