1920's - 1930's Industrial Block
On April 28, 2022 Dayton History's Carillon Historical Park held a ribbon cutting and dedication ceremony for the newest Industrial Park exhibits. The complex represents a tribute to some of the industries that were significant in Dayton in the 1920's and 1930's. This includes the newly expanded print shop, a demonstration foundry, a soap factory exhibit, Standard Register sales office, relocated Sun Oil station, and the Corliss Engine building stabilization.
Dayton History President and CEO Brady Kress spoke about the project, and introduced several donors and Dayton History supporters who would serve as ribbon cutters. This included the print shop volunteers who run the print shop and operate the presses. Valerie Lemmie, chair of the Dayton History Board of Trustees also addressed the several hundred visitors in attendance.
After the ribbon cutting visitors were invited to tour the print shop, foundry, and soap factory exhibits.
