Did you know that a remnant of Lorain’s high-flying airport days is still out there on Leavitt Road?
Well, although the hangar and other buildings of Long’s Airport are long gone, across Leavitt Road is the building that was the home of Lorain Skyport.

This was also confirmed to me many years ago by a knowledgable member of the Black River Historical Society (now the Lorain Historical Society).
I remember as a kid seeing the building, sitting all by itself and resembling a hangar (it hadn’t been structurally altered yet to how it looks now) and seeming right at home across from Long’s Airport. It was all closed up for many years.
Anyway, I guess it seems only proper that the building is now used by, er, sky pilots.
