The Cavenaugh family donated their original property to the City of Black Rock Tuesday.

According to Mayor Bonnie Ragsdale, Don and Fran Cavenaugh donated their property on Highway 117, which was the site of the original dealership and service shop when Charlie Cavenaugh purchased the dealership in 1978.

Since then, the dealership has outgrown the Black Rock property.

Ragsdale was surprised to receive the key and title to the property Tuesday at city hall.

Ragsdale said the donation is a blessing to the town. She said Black Rock plans to use the facility to perform maintenance and store equipment. She said she is also proud to keep such a historical building safe.
