At one time the first two blocks of College Street were home to four automobile dealerships and could be considered Greenville’s new “Motor Mile.” The Erskine Studebaker Company was on the site where the Daniel Building was later built. Greenville photographer Bill Coxe was hired to photograph most of the businesses in downtown Greenville including the Erskine Studebaker Sales Company.

Today the site is occupied by the Daniel Building, Greenville’s tallest building, which was built as a home for what was then called the Daniel Construction Company. Construction of the building, using a steel frame covered with precast concrete panels, was completed in 1966.
