This Month in Rochester History

Fifty years ago this month, Rochester welcomed a new automobile dealer to town.  L. Keith Crissman, the community's Chevrolet dealer at the time, made a deal to sell his business to Bill Fox.  Thus Crissman Chevrolet became Bill Fox Chevrolet, a local company that is still going strong in 2017 and has expanded across the state.

Meanwhile, Crissman became a partner in the Wilson Cadillac dealership in Birmingham, and that business was renamed Wilson-Crissman Cadillac.
