        The design details of the building reminds me of a castle, very interesting and good looking structure.

          I can almost imagine an almost totally glass front where the 2 stories worth of newer windows are. It is a nice building. The renovation kinda reminds me of a restomodification. Your building, your money.have it your way. Would also have liked to see it in it's former glory. thanks for sharing. jimmijim

            I believe you are exactly correct about the windows. I was just getting ready to comment on that. We have a small building here in Lafayette which is also white terra cotta and has similar elfish gargoylish characters adorning the front.

              Classic detail and design as the building was made to last. I wonder who made the decision to restore rather than destroy the building. I see a coffee-table book in the future of all the "Studebaker" buildings and dealerships still standing. Thank you for sharing.

                We need a model of that building on our model railroad here at the school. Much more impressive than the one we currently have.
