Of this series, this building is lamented, and well fotographed on the 'nets'. The domes of telescope houses resemble a Trojan helmet, becoming immediately picturesque.

The Taylor Road facility was a genuine world class research observatory. They helped prove the Milky Way was a spiral galaxy. On a hill, in East Cleveland next to Cleveland Heights,there was housed and operated multiple telescopes. One was moved to a new observatory in Geauga County, where there is no city lights. It stayed there from 1957 to 1979, then to Arizona's Kitt Peak National Observatory.
