Bank Building

-A A +A
1905. W. Sheridan Ave. between Elm and Blossom streets

A strong Beaux-Arts design here dominates the street. The ground floor has two entrances: one with a dramatic pediment leads to the bank, another to the stair leading to the offices on the second floor. Between these two entrances is a recessed bay window. The second floor has a large arched window flanked by engaged Ionic columns.
