Ford’s Oyster House and Cajun Kitchen
A history lesson from your friends at Ford’s Oyster House and Cajun Kitchen…
From 1913 to 1924, this building housed W.M. Thompson’s T-model Ford Agency. It was the first Ford Motor Company dealership in the Upstate of South Carolina, and at that time the cost of a new car was around $550. The street level where you are now was the showroom displaying the shiny new cars. The floor above was used as workspace for repairs and is now home to The Loft at Falls Park, downtown’s premier event space with beautiful views of Liberty Bridge, Falls Park and Main Street. What is now the stairwell used to be a large elevator that moved the cars from floor to floor. And the top level was used to store Thompson’s inventory of the latest designs from Ford. We honor Greenville’s rich history and are proud to occupy this beautiful building.
