Some very interesting places just off the photo to the left. That was the location of the old Oberlin Airport and Coates Flying Service. In the upper left corner you can just make out the "Oberlin" on the roof of the small hangar. You can see it better in the thumbnail on the preview page for roll 23-HLO.

When the airport opened in 1947 the building just off the photo was the Skyway Restaurant. I can only find mentions of it in 1947 and 1948. The airport was sold off in 1990 and did not serve as an airport after that.

The interesting house that look like it used to be a barn is still there and still interesting. This is the south side of SR 511 just east of Vermilion Rd, Oberlin. For a look at the airport and the Skyway see photo 20-PLO-27 from 1978:
