Default Coolspring Trivia

In preperation for Coolspring 2012 Show Feature: Engines Built in Ohio and Celebrating 125 Years of Foos Engines: I started a monthly Trivia Question.
The answer to the first question, was answered correctly by Smokstak readers.
The engine was a Miller 50 HP that was placed in preservation by Ellis Wellman. The engine is now owned by Bill and Kathleen Hazzard. It had been on display at the Coolspring Power Museum for several years. It has recently been moved to Rough & Tumble in Kinzers, Pa. It will be running there for the 2011 season. It will be replaced at CPM by another 50 HP Miller with integral compressor cylinder. The new trivia question: The Lyman Boat Company moved from Cleveland, Ohio in 1928 to what city and into the building that once housed what engine builder?

I'm gonna guess the Lyman Boat Co. moved to Sandusky, Oh into the old Ohio Motor Co. building. could be wrong though.
