y introduction to Carriage House Automotive was an interesting one.
It was about ten years ago. I had just purchased a used 2005 MINI
Cooper S from the local Honda dealer. The car had about 100,000 miles
on it and was a fun ride. However, within a day of acquiring the car, the power
steering failed and the passenger seatback broke. Back to the Honda dealer we
went. They agreed to have the issues fixed, but couldn't do it themselves.
" Why don't you take it to Carriage House Automotive over on Wormans Mill
Court, and we'll pay for the repairs, " they said. I did, and I've been taking my
cars to Carriage House ever since.
Mark Reynolds, the son of the
founder, has been the Service Manager
at Carriage House for as long as I've
been going there.
dB: What is the origin story of Carriage
House Automotive?

Street. The building had been a carriage house and carriage repair shop in the
1800s so the name of the business was changed to " Carriage House
Automotive " . The grand opening of the new auto repair shop was on December
3, 1979. By the early 1980s, business was leaving downtown Frederick and a
larger shop was needed, so a new facility was designed and constructed
specifically to service modern automobiles. This building opened in November
of 1987 and is at the current location, 18 Wormans Mill Court, on the north end
of Frederick. In 1992 the business had the distinction of becoming a Robert
Bosch Certified Automobile Service
Facility, the only one in the area at that
time. James Reynolds passed away in
February of 2011, but the business
carried on under the stewardship of his
family. In 2019 we celebrated our 40th
Anniversary as Carriage House
Automotive. The business continues to
be operated by our family, and we hope
to keep it running for many years to
come.

founded in 1979 by my father, James
R. Reynolds. " Carriage House " is the
