1915, John Tulloch. 301 S. Walnut St.

Since 1976, the museum has occupied the former public library, built with funding from the Carnegie Foundation. The classical scheme of red brick is composed of a single story above a limestone raised basement and has a modest stone portico at the entrance.

On the same block at 315 S. Walnut, the two-story Walnut Street Church of Christ (1920), built of beige brick on a raised foundation, has a wide flight of steps leading to a loggia of two Ionic columns in antis.
