Facility will be great investment

It’s not everyday that someone invests close to $1 million dollars into the Ironton area, however, Oct. 14 was the opening of the StoneCreek Storage Center on the old Alpha Portland Cement Plant property.

As many know, this property has been abandoned since Aug. 20, 1970, when 175 employees were told that the plant was closing for good.

Since that time, the property has been but an eyesore on our area, but today is the first steps of many improvements and developments to the property.

Thanks to Cheryl Bolender, six acres of this property have been developed into a state-of-the-art storage center, the facility has five buildings, including a climate-controlled building, which has 62 units of various sizes available for rent.

Also, there are 125 drive up self-storage units available in sizes from a 5’x 10’ up to a 10’ x 30’ unit. Another option is there is plenty of room for boat and RV storage and, coming in the spring, there will be covered RV parking available.

StoneCreek Storage is fully secured by fencing and has coded gate access for it’s tenants, as will as 24-hour video surveillance all over the property.

This facility will be a great asset to anyone needing climate controlled or self-storage and there are more developments to come. Thanks again to Cheryl Bolender for your huge investment in the Ironton area.
