History Tidbits

Falls Glass serves Sheboygan Falls
​since 1980.

​Built by Gustav and Albert Helming in 1929, the brick building on the corner of Monroe and Michigan Streets housed a large Chevrolet dealership. The business ran successfully until 1938 when both brothers passed away within twelve months. The next owners were Julius and Charles Beyer who called their business Falls Motor Sales and sold Plymouth and DeSoto cars. The building housed car dealerships until 1970 when it was vacated and boarded up. Rescued by the Selk family in 1980, they family purchased Falls Glass Service from the original owners, Clarence and Laura Huiras who started the business in 1950.
