Here's a nice article about Heilman's Ranch House that ran in the Lorain Journal on Thursday, March 28, 1974 ( just a few days before the photo that I posted in my last blog entry was published). It's by well-known Journal Staff Writer Jack LaVriha. It gives a nice history of the Ranch House, as well as the original Heilman's that was located at the corner of West Erie Avenue and Broadway (where the City Center is now).
The article is a wistful look at the closing of Heilman's Ranch House due to urban renewal. (Click on it for a readable version.)
