A small, simple office building, this is the only Moderne design in Rogers. It was also the first office building in Rogers with air conditioning, casement windows, and windows that wrap around its corners, and the bakery (connected to the office) was the first with conveyor belts. Introducing all these firsts was the bakery’s owner, Earl Harris, who bought the Lane Hotel (BN21) in 1935. Originally the flat-roofed building, which is faced in stucco, was capped by a cornice composed of a narrow band of gold leaf, and gold leaf covered the company’s name that marches in raised letters across the facade. The entrance is at the northwest corner of the building.
