Turrets and towers: some of these Dayton landmarks are gone, but they live on in photos

Many of Dayton’s historic landmark buildings only exist in photographs. 

Here are 3 things to know about the city’s former institutions.

1. Steele High School opened in 1891 along the Great Miami River and was reminiscent of a castle with turrets at each corner. 

2. Dayton’s first “skyscraper” was the Callahan Building.

As a young man, poet Paul Laurence Dunbar worked as an elevator operator in the building. 

3. Trains headed to Dayton’s Union Station knew they had arrived when they saw the seven-story clock tower.
