Notes
Survey number HABS MN-146-AD
Significance: As reported by the "Grand Rapids Herald Review" of 14 March 1917, David Gage Joyce's original plans for his summer estate at Trout Lake called for the construction of a garage during that year. Joyce was a devotee of fast expensive automobiles, and he intended to drive to his estate from his home in Chicago. Although a garage almost certainly was built in 1917, it is doubtful that the Three-Car Garage dates from that period. The estate's initial buildings were log-frame, such as the Farmhouse, located just to the north of the Three-Car Garage. In contrast, the Three-Car Garage is a wood-frame building with drop siding -- a type of construction that Joyce adopted during the mid-1920s, as evidenced by the Moore Lake Cabin. The Three-Car Garage probably dates from the mid-1920s as well. It was definitely standing by 1938, when Joyce's probate inventory itemized a garage containing the following three vehicles: "32 V-8 station wagon ford, 32 DeLuxe Touring Car V-8, 32 4 cylinder pickup." ... This single-story, rectangular, wood-frame structure is covered by a gable roof. The axis of the roof runs north-south.
