This used to be the entrance sign to the GM Truck & Bus plant in Moraine, OH (a suburb of Dayton). This plant was featured in The Oscar nominated documentary "Last One Down the Line." In it's prime this factory complex employed 15,000 and 20,000 people. Dayton was built on innovation and given life by factories. Let's hope innovation remains.

Location: Moraine, OH
