Where’s the oldest Harley-Davidson dealership? You might think it’s in Milwaukee where Harley makes its headquarters, but writing in “The Columbus Dispatch” columnist Joe Blundo singles out the A.D. Farrow dealership in the Ohio capitol, and he recalls that it owes its longevity to a single mother of three.
The dealership was started in Nelsonville, Ohio in 1912 by Alfred D. Farrow but moved to Columbus in 1914. He died in 1927, leaving his widow, Lillian, to carry on through the Depression and World War II. Blundo’s column is posted here.
