Myers Trucking on the south side of Rt 18 east of West Rd, Penfield.

Mixdenny, I just purchased this home and would like to know more about its history if you have any to share thank you

Hi Cindy. I am not familiar with the history of Myers other then knowing where it is! I did a newspaper search and the Elyria Chronicle Telegram archives mention "Myers Trucking" in 45 articles from 1947 to 1974. Most are just ads or bowling scores. You can get a trial subscription to newspaperarchives.com and look through them. I'm not affiliated with them (or Vintage Aerial) just a happy user.

The County will not have photos but you can trace back the ownership at the Auditor's office. Lorain County's deed search is quite awkward and the clerks can show you how to do it. The archives are probably closed to the public for now, I guess. Narrow rows of heavy books.
