1. Jackman Building Marker
Inscription. The Jackman Building is an unusual and valuable example of early twentieth century commercial architecture because it is preserved virtually intact both inside and out. It was built for the law firm of Richmond, Jackman and Swanson. Their successors occupied the second and most of the third floors until 1976. In style the building is a simplified version of the Classical Revival. Classical elements include the decorative cornice and stonework around the main entrance.
