The picture to the left shows the Gem City Grocery store. The store was named Gem city after the town of Laramie earned this name as being a gem of a town. The building was remodeled around 1931 by C.B. Jensen and clearly, remodeled again at a later date. The music box is located there now, with a very different exterior. Check out the American Heritage Center's collections to see more of Laramie's past.
Lovejoy's Garage began as a bicycle shop. However, it eventually grew into an automobile shop. Several different inventions would be created in the Lovejoy garage through the years, including the automatic garage door opener. Lovejoy's Garage began as a one story building but would grow to become the two story structure pictured today. Today the building is home to the Biodiversity Conservation Alliance.
