Interurban Powerhouse & Coca Cola Bottling Company

The Interurban Powerhouse was west of Sugar Creek and South of Lafayette Pike (Avenue).  During the Flood of 1913 the powerhouse was unable to retain power due to the excessive amount of water and the Interurban was shut down for a few days (along with numerous railroads, bridges and roadways).  In later years the Interurban ceased operation and the Coca Cola Bottling Company utilized the building.  In February of 1993 this building was razed.

Notice the men sitting in the window - possibly on a break?
