Duarte Garage
Portola Avenue and North L Street
Livermore
Built 1915

The Duarte Garage was built on the original Lincoln Highway which ran from Times Square in New York City to Lincoln Park in San Francisco. When the Carquinez Bridge was opened in 1927, the Lincoln Highway was realigned to what is now I-80.

The garage sold gasoline and oil products and performed repairs. In 1923 the south half of the garage was added and became an automobile d dealership selling Durant Star and Flint models.

In the 1940s, the garage was converted into a machine shop for rebuilding winery and farm equipment.

In the 1970s, the City of Livermore purchased the building and surrounding land for use as a park.

The Livermore Heritage Guild restored the building and operates it as a museum.
