The Oberlin Airport, home of Coates Flying Service. In the front was the Skyway Restaurant in 1947 and 1948, I can't find any mention of it after that. On the south side of SR 511 between Vermilion and Gifford roads, Oberlin.

The old restaurant building and the square hangar are still there. The airport was sold in 1990 and does not seems to have operated after that. The long gravel drive that used to be the runway is still there although some trees are fairly close.
