Toledo, OH is home to this old White Tower, located in a a building that appears to be from the 1930's. It also appears to be not long for the world as the sign in the window seems to say this site is under review for an expansion for the YWCA. The building has been abandoned for at least a year. 08-08


UPDATE 08;08 : According to this Ohio Preservation Alliance site, the White Tower Restaurant needs to be relocated due to an expansion project by the YWCA. Many thanks to Richard Weiss for update. 08-08
