HistoryDesigned and built by the Austin Co. of Cleveland, Ohio, in 1953, this 18,606 sq.ft. building was used as a steam generation plant. It is an irregular-shaped, two-story structure with a concrete foundation and walls clad in metal panels. A one-story, concrete flat-roofed ell extends from the west side. The industrial windows are multi-paned set in metal sash and the flat roof has four chimney stacks. The steam produced was for plant-wide use.
