    1. Thew-Lorain sold out to Koehring in 1967 and the plant was closed in 1974. I did work in those older buildings back in the 1990’s – they were spacious, drafty, and impossible to heat. They were mainly used for ladle repairs Campana was doing for the mill, and we all know of the demise of the mill. SInce businesses have to pay more taxes on buildings than just the land they sit on, it’s more than likely a tax saving issue to tear down the older buildings.


Thanks for visiting Lorain 365! Your feedback is welcomed and appreciated!
