Abandoned Observatory East Cleveland Ohio. The Warner and Swasey Observatory is the astronomical observatory of Case Western Reserve University. The observatory was located on Taylor Road in East Cleveland, Ohio, USA. The observatory, which at that time housed a 9.5-inch refractor telescope, was donated in 1919 to the Case School of Applied Science. Between 1919 and 1950, a few more telescopes came and gone. In the 1950s, light pollution from Cleveland was beginning to make research impossible from the East Cleveland site. A new site was constructed 30 miles to the east in Geauga County, known today as the Nassau Station
In May 1979, the newer 36-inch reflector telescope on Taylor Road was moved to the Nassau Station. No further astronomical work was done at the Taylor Road The Taylor Road facility was sold in 1983, was abandoned until 2005 when it was sold to a couple who planned to convert the building into a residence. The plans stalled when its new owner was convicted of mortgage fraud and sent to prison in 2007.
