Tanks Memorial Stadium
Description: The field of Tank Memorial Stadium in Ironton. Previously the Ironton Tanks used to be a popular team in their home town, and they were good enough to attract over 1,000 spectators to their games. The Tanks were known for going up against the NFL teams of their day in the 1920s and their impressive winning average against some of the best teams. Unfortunately, the team fell apart once the Great Depression hit the country and after 1930 the team no longer existed as anything more than a memory. View on Ohio Memory.
