Former Chevy dealership comes down
space
The building that once held the Beversdorf Chevrolet dealership and then served as the headquarters for the North Central Laboratories at Birnamwood is being razed this week clearing even more of the community’s main street.

During 2013, the hotel building, located just north of the automobile dealer, fell to the wrecking ball.

Both of the structures were large and the garage especially substantial.

While the hotel dated to the day of railroad travel, being only a block from the Birnamwood rails, the automobile dealership was a sign of the past when many smaller communities had establishments that sold automobiles.

Back in the earlier days, not only did Birnamwood have a major automobile sales and service facility, the cars were also sold in Neva Corners and Bryant. The Bryant operation moved into Antigo and they continue to operate a General Motors dealership here, also an Eagle River and a used vehicle facility in Crandon.

After the Beversdorf dealership closed the building, it was idle for a number of years before being taken over by North Central Laboratories.

When the firm constructed a stunning new facility in a Birnamwood industrial area, operations in the former garage was shut down and the structure was again idle.

North Central Laboratories provides materials and services to more than 4,000 wastewater laboratories across all of the United States and a number of foreign countries.
