History of the Crosley Building



Crosley History

You may have seen The Crosley Building, the original home of Cincinnati's 700 WLW and former headquarters of famous inventor Powell Crosley featured on this website before. Despite the many explorations done inside very little specifics were known about the buildings history. Thanks to a recent contribution by
Ram23 we now have an interesting tidbit about the building:

This excerpt from a book on Cincinnati history has a vision of what was then a state-of-the-art facility being the centerpiece and catalyst for an economically thriving neighborhood. Today The Crosley Building sits abandoned, being used as storage and a refuge for the homeless, yet the holder of a proud history.
