Writer, Dayton Historian, Librarian…Andrew Walsh can add one more title to his resume: published author. In his book, Lost Dayton, Ohio, Andrew covers many historical Dayton structures lost to time and urban renewal and revitalization efforts.
A transplant to Dayton in 2013 from Wisconsin, Andrew became interested in the historical architecture of Dayton as he viewed Dayton from his window at Dayton Towers. Although Andrew no longer lives there, his fascination continues.
We attended a book signing for Andrew on August 1st at the Books & Co. at The Greene and had a chance to meet Andrew and listen to his presentation about Lost Dayton, Ohio.
Read as Andrew describes lost neighborhoods, buildings, commercial districts and more. The book is available at Carillon Historical Park and the following retailers:
