First National Bank and Parking Structure

-A A +A
1982. Northeast corner of 5th and Douglas streets

This seven-level garage and banking facility functions as a neutral background to a grouping of five Ionic columns and an accompanying architrave situated within the small park across the street. These fragments were rescued from a 1905 bank building and were erected as a landscape folly.
