Architects: Bradley, Winslow, & Wetherell

The great building boom of the 1880's, when eastern business invested heavily in the new cities of the frontier, produced this and several other significant structures in Kansas City. In the Neo-Renaissance Style, the brownstone facade of this office building is well proportioned. The arabesque stonework is outstanding; especially noteworthy is the oriel.

Entered on the National Register of Historic Places - 1973.
