What purpose did the old brick building at the crossroads of 161 and 4 serve? The building appears as though it's been vacant for some time. I drive past it on my way to Columbus, and was curious.

Back in the 50's I think it was a school, then a truck stop.

This old school was closed in 1943. It was turned into a truck stop in the early 1950s by Sheridan&Annabell Bennett and it operated until the early 1970s

the primary purpose for this huge school building that was only used for about 5 years, was to show the taxpayers how screwd-up the systems are......
