Bayard Ewing Building, Division of Architecture, Rhode Island School of Design (Fall River Iron Works Warehouse)

-A A +A
Fall River Iron Works Warehouse
1848. 1978, restoration, Irving B. Haynes and Associates. 231 South Main St.

This monumental Greek Revival commercial building, with gable pediment facing the street and attic monitors, was built just as industrial construction shifted from stone to brick. Providence was once famous for Greek Revival storefronts deeply inset within just such simple granite framing. One of the few remaining and most impressive examples, it has been sympathetically rehabilitated for its present use. Others exist in North Smithfield (see NS16 and NS28).
