The Crown OTR Revitalization

The old Crown Furniture Company building has a new lease on life. Now known as Crown OTR, the building at 1739 Elm Street is located on the streetcar line and directly across the street from Findlay Market. Crown OTR’s facebook page describes itself as “One family’s personal journey through their contribution to the revitilization of a historic neighborhood.”

    I think this should be 1739 Elm Street. I have been working on the history of this building.

      Ann, you’re right! Its facebook page says 1739 too. On the auditor’s website, it is 205 W Elder, I believe.

        Yes. It actually has quite a few addresses. I can’t wait to share the history with Kim and Kevin.
