Chicago's Motor Row was added to the National Register of Historic Places on November 18, 2002. The Motor Row District has 55 buildings that have been given landmark status by the Commission on Chicago Landmarks. This group of commercial buildings on Chicago's Near South Side is considered to be the largest, intact early "automobile row" in the US.
Auto rows developed in numerous cities shortly after 1900 as car companies sought to create districts where the sale and repair of cars could become an easy urban shopping experience. At its peak, as many as 116 different makes of automobiles were being sold on Motor Row. Some are familiar today, including Ford, Buick, Fiat, and Cadillac, while others are better known to historians and old-car buffs, including Hudson, Locomobile, Marmon, and Pierce-Arrow.
