Quonset Huts in Lorain
For instance, there are two sitting right next to each other at 4465 Oberlin Avenue (shown above). The Lorain County Auditor website says they were built in 1948. One seems to function as a home, the other as a garage – it's kind of hard to tell. They seem to have been chopped down a little.
I first found the 4465 Oberlin Avenue address in the 1957 city directory – a year after Kew Gardens was dissolved and its quonset huts dispersed far and wide.
Here's an aerial view of how they are situated.
I don’t know, but in this age of “tiny houses,” I wonder if quonset huts will make a comeback?
