1. The Naegel Building Marker
Inscription. In 1893 Robert Naegel built this two-story structure featuring an elaborate metal facade that reflects a combination of Italianate and Queen Anne architecture. The Capital Finance Corporation was located here for nearly 40 years, beginning in the late 20's. The Greensburg Engineering Company shared the back of the store until 1960. Over time the second floor provided residences for many individuals including Mr. Naegel.
