One of the most significant landmarks in the Grove Street Lackawanna station neighborhood for 60 years was the building that, in its final years, was called the Lincoln-Mayflower Storage Building. It was the tallest structure in the area and was on a high piece of ground. It was built about 1912 and was knocked down in the early 1970's during construction of I-280.
The building was originally operated as "J Dietrich Inc Fireproof Storage Warehouse"
