A Little Taste of Our History

The building that currently houses 36 Degrees North has a rich history. Did you know it was originally a Model T dealership back in the 1920's? And it's been through a lot since then.

Retrofit Magazine recently published an awesome article on how we went from dealership to entrepreneurship. If you're an architect or history buff, we highly recommend taking the time to read it.

Here are a few pictures to show you how the character of the original Universal Ford Building has been preserved...
