Frank Bartlow Prototype Building

Postby spadra » Mon Jul 04, 2011 1:15 pm

Happy 4th everyone!!

Does anyone have a street address for the Frank Bartlow Prototype Building in Millville, PA? I have started a Google map to document existing prototype buildings (see link below) and would like to add it.

Thanks!

I don't know the exact address, but it is on South Chestnut Street. It has to be some small number as it is in the second block off Main street (splits north and south).

Thanks Jim! Found the building. It's located on South Chestnut between Post Office Avenue and Walnut Street.

Punch this into Google Maps:

41.12231 -76.52597

and it takes you right there.

Excellent!

I show that the Coleman Brothers had a dealership in that building in 1948. Do you know anything more about who came after that?

I know the dealership remained open long after '48, nothing else.

Peter:

I didn't know Shawmut owned an IH Prototype building :!: Ray deals with Shawmut for his cranes. Actually met one of the boys last spring when we went to St John to see the new RT Cranes. Shawmut now has a tech service outlet here. If you are ever by the shop, pics a possibility? Ray would love it and I would appreciate it for the Prototype design.

Some may be hard to believe from their current appearance.

Former Harvey Pfennig 43.085455,-78.696399
Not sure, but believe the center section of this was the shop section of Chiavetta's 42.587249,-79.017245

What did the prototype buildings look like?

Bartlow Prototype International Harvester Building & Museum

The sole remaining example of an unmodified prototype IH dealership building built and operated by its original owner and family and used only as an IH dealership!

Located in Millville, Pa., only eight miles from Interstate 80, this unique prototype International Harvester dealership building will house exhibits of IH agricultural, industrial and military equipment, home appliances, as well as memorabilia from IHCC Chapter 17 members' collections and the original Frank Bartlow dealership. Exhibits will be regularly changed to assure repeat visitors a varied educational experience.

There is one west of Fremont, OH on US 20. Was a working dealership until I left the area in 1999. Maybe Bill Darr can shed some light on that one.
