Inscription.  
Built in 1902 for NCR, components of this 210-ton Corliss Engine were pulled from Dayton's freight yards to the NCR factory by five teams of horses.

This is one of the two steam-powered Corliss Engines NCR used from 1902 to 1948. The engines generated electricity for NCR's 27 factory buildings.

NCR's Corliss Engines also supplied electricity to downtown Dayton following the disastrous 1913 Flood that killed more than 360 people across the Miami Valley.

The yellow sandstone bricks and large windows of this building represent the look of the former NCR factory buildings.

Built in 1949 in Carillon Historical Park.
