The original structure, still standing, has probably been moved from its original trackside location.  It now sits on  private property several hundred feet away from what was once was the right of way and is now part of the “Rails to Trails” program.  It currently rests on a concrete foundation. The building serviced the Little Miami Branch which ran from Morrow, Ohio to Cincinnati, Ohio. The building was probably constructed in the 1880’s. The building is 16 feet by 32 feet in size.  Below are thumbnails of the model Freight House kit.
