History of Fords being sold in Preston, MD for 100 years (1913-2013)
In the year 1913 Joseph J. Garris opened the first Ford dealer in Preston, MD and it was called Preston Auto Agency. He eventually built the a new building on Main Street in Preston and that is where it stayed until destroyed by a fire in February of 2000. In 1935 Garris sold the Ford Dealership to Mr. M Heber Lane and Frank Brauchle, the name was changed to the Preston Motor Company. In 1975 M. Heber Lane sold the dealership to Frank Showell and Robert MacDonald, the name was changed to Preston Ford Inc. The current owner of Preston Ford Inc. is Dave Wilson and the dealership has grown to be the Preston Automotive Group selling more than just Fords. Although there are other brands sold at the dealership, it all started with Ford and that is what is being celebrated, 100 years of it!
