Then and now: 2037 Lee Road
The building at 2037 Lee Road, near the intersection of Yorkshire Road, was built in 1928 as the Heights branch of the U.S. Post Office. It is now the location of Heights Mini Storage, Inc.
The post office moved to another location on Lee Road in the 1960s and then later moved to Severance Circle, where it remains today. The building was purchased by two men who ran State Drug and Sundries there until 1984.
It was then purchased by Tim and Joan Evans, who intended to renovate and resell or rent it. Due to zoning restrictions, however, they ended up remodeling it into a mini storage facility and retaining ownership.
The business has been going strong for 32 years. "We have many tenants who have been with us for many years but are always happy to accommodate new tenants," said Joan Evans.
Heights Mini Storage has storage units ranging from 2 ft. x 3 ft. to 8 ft. x 20 ft. The units are either 7 ft. or 9 ft. in height. Hours are Monday through Friday, 9 a.m. to noon and 4–6 p.m., and Saturday, 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. It is closed on Sundays and holidays. Contact Heights Mini Storage at 216-321-5325 or email@example.com.
