  Colcord Building
by mrclay2000

On what amounts to the southern edge of the downtown highrises, the Colcord Building was erected in 1909, which at 14 stories towered over the downtown area in its day. Today it remains conspicuous in the southern skyline because the newer, taller skyscrapers do not surround and hide it from the casual viewer. Its present significance is due not only to its age and historical status (or its listing on the National Register of Historic Places), but also from its intricate carvings above the entablature around the first and second floors.

Address: Robinson Avenue and Park Avenue
