One of the more outstanding buildings is called the Dome Building. It was constructed in 1892, and then called Ochs building. It is at the corner of 8th and Georgia Ave., just east of Market St. It is Italian Renaissance style and apparently the last owner preserved the lobby back to old tradition. It is six stories. The gold dome cupola just makes this stand out from the rest. It is on the National Register, and last had the investor with $5 million spent.
Across the street is an angle type building that has a similarity to Flat Iron Bldg in NY. In fact it is called Flatiron building. It is at corner of Georgia and Walnut. The rear climbs slightly up the hill, while the front has a distinct flange effect.
The steeple in the rear of the pic is what is left of a Methodist church since torn down. The building to right of the dome bldg is Carnegie library. Many other art deco type survive in the downtown, but scores were destroyed in the "renovation"
