Cleveland Avenue (Milo) Carhouse - 2007

        The Milo complex at Cleveland and Reynolds Avenues included a power station, the carhouse and an office building.  All that remains is the office building.  This facility was originally build by the Central Railway for the Westerville line.  The line was absorbed into the streetcar system early.  The Cleveland Avenue line was the first Columbus streetcar line converted to trolley bus in 1933.  The Milo carhouse then became the Cleveland Avenue Coach Station.

The office building was across Reynolds Avenue from the carhouse and power station, all three of which faced on Cleveland Avenue.
