Inscription.  
In 1870, you could travel the length of Third Street through downtown Dayton on the city's first horse-drawn streetcar line. The top speed was six miles per hour.

This building was designed to be reminiscent of Dayton's Union Station and a railroad roundhouse. In 1856, Dayton's first "union” passenger depot was built at Sixth and Ludlow Streets. A new Union Station was built in 1901 with a clock tower. During the Great Dayton Flood of 1913, approximately 300 passengers were stranded there. It was torn down in 1989.

A roundhouse was where trains were repaired and serviced. A locomotive was placed on a turntable located outside the roundhouse. The turntable would spin the locomotive to an open bay so it could be repaired.

Built in 2000 in Carillon Historical Park.
