312 - 316 North 8th

Originally constructed in 1888 as the Phipps-Wallace Store Building and later owned by the L & N Railroad, 312-316 North 8th, is six-stories of commercial red brick and sandstone with a 1920s limestone base.

Designed by Alfred F. Rosenheim in the Richardsonian Romanesque style popularized in the United States by Boston architect H.H. Richardson, the building features a number of unique elements specific to the style and period in which it was constructed, including rhythmic arched windows and contrasting colored sandstone blocks.  During the 1920s, the Security National Bank contracted to replace the old storefront with a classical limestone front considered more appropriate for its image. In 2005, the upper stories of the building were converted into residential lofts, and the former bank space was renovated into a banquet space (see below).

Because there have been few alterations to the exterior, the building retains its 1925 appearance and therefore retains its integrity of design, location, setting, materials, workmanship.
