1909, William R. Hamilton, of Wagner and Hamilton. 1985, addition and renovation, Brown, Donald, Lemay and Page. 314–318 Prince St.

The great elk's head sculpture on the upper facade displays the building's former function as a men's club. The imposing bulk of the structure helps to maintain the wall of buildings on this side of the block.
