1915–1927

Willys-Overland Motors

Court International was erected in 1915 as a warehouse for the Overland Stoves Company of Toledo, Ohio, a subsidiary of the Willys-Overland Motor Company, which went on to make the original Jeep vehicle in the 1940s. The property was used for automobile sales and service from 1915 to 1928.

During WWI, the facility was used as an aviation training school. The property was also the venue for annual automobile shows until 1927.
