Auto Craft Center

The Auto Craft Center, building 255, was located on Wainwright Boulevard, now Johnson Avenue. The building was constructed in 1962.

The Auto Craft Center offered a wide range of services and had a large selection of equipment and tools. The facility had four bays for auto maintenance, complete with lifts, and one bay for cleaning. A resale store was available and saved the users 20-50 percent on auto parts and supplies.

Located near the Fitness Center, the Auto Craft Center consisted of a wash rack, maintenance stalls and welding shop. Almost all types of maintenance could be performed by the car owner.
