Duke's Cyclery

This last week we have been discussing the Windsor Hotel and the YMCA which was built on that location. Across the street to the north there is now a parking lot. At one time that parking lot was home to a couple businesses. One of those was Duke’s Cyclery. At one time Duke was the dealer for Schwinn Bicycles and also Harley Davidson Motorcycles. Next to Duke’s was a small cafĂ©, not sure of the name and a tree or two and then Parker Motors. Not sure if it was before or after this location, but Duke’s was also in a building north of and adjacent to the Parker Hotel… That location is where the dining room is now for the Senior Citizens center.

  1. The cafe next to Duke's Cyclery was called Oscar Sather Lunch. My grandma cooked there and my Dad washed dishes when he was 10-11 years old.
