Track Facts

Elevation: 1050 feet Latitude: 40.074131 Longitude: -84.638157 GPS: N 40 4.44786, W 84 38.2894 Time zone: EST/EDT (-0500/-0400)

Historical Note

The track opened on July 4th, 1930 (White gives 1921 as a construction start, this does not appear to be correct.) It operated through 1942. It reopened after WWII on August 3rd, 1947, operating through 1948, and reopened again on June 17th, 1951, operating to 1952.

A descendant of one of the original partners tells me that her family still owns the property where the remants of the track are located.
