Moreland Manor Apartments

The Moreland Manor Apartment building originally opened for occupancy November 29th, 1925 by the Moreland Realty Co. The newly constructed apartment building was a new concept for the Lima area as it was designed to meet the exquisite accommodations of a first class hotel.  The apartment boasted of:

"a sound proof and fire proof building with electrically equipped refrigerators and ranges, garbage incinerators, steam heating with a delicatessen and beauty shop occupying the front lower two store fronts"

E. W. Mumaugh was selected as the general contractor by the Moreland Realty Co, owned by W.R. Mumaugh and Henry A. Tilton, in early 1925. Completion for the twenty- two one and two bedroom apartments was to be completed by the first of September of that same year; however records show that the building was not ready for occupancy till November of that same year.  Early advertising states that

    "no costs have been spared to make this one of Lima's very best structures"

and at charging $45.00 per month, it took no time in filling the building with occupants who expected sophisticated living arrangements in the charming architecture of Moreland Manor.

Mike and Barb O'Connor care about Lima and its history.  Fully renovating the Moreland Manor back to its original glory was important in this restoration as well as giving to Lima modernized downtown living accommodations which we believe has been missing.  The current twenty four small apartments are complete with the beauty of the original wood floors, all new bathroom, kitchens and windows, antique doors and carpentry; but include the modern conveniences of high speed internet, digital phone, secured entrance access and monitoring, cable TV, laundry facilities and storage.

We hope you will join us in opening our doors to professional adult tenants who will appreciate the beauty of this wonderful historic building and want to capture the feeling of downtown living.  Thank you,
