HistoryDesigned by the Austin, Co. of Cleveland, Ohio, this two-story, 39,940 sq. ft. building was built in 1953. The building is rectangular with a wing to the west. The main block is concrete with industrial, multi-paned, metal sash windows, arranged in sets of three. The window panes are either painted or covered with metal. The central section of the flat roof rises to form a monitor. An office wing to the west was added in 1984 and was constructed of concrete block and has fixed single-pane windows in metal sash. One of the plant's original buildings, it was used as general maintenance and offices - electrical shop, machine shop, carpentry shop, sheet metal shop, pipe and welding shop.
