In 1907, the International Harvester, dealer of tractors and 'motor trucks,' built its regional headquarters here on Asylum. They also built this building, in the late 1920s, mainly as a truck-repair facility. When they left in the '30s, Great Atlantic Shoe moved into the older building; the newer one became a warehouse for the Hartman Beverage Co., when they were best known for 7-Up, but were developing a recipe for a clever new drink they called Mountain Dew." -Jack Neely . The space is now re-opening as a private event venue that can hold up to 300 seated, 1000 standing.
