Not much to see. Its a business now so you only get to read the plaque outside and see the exterior of the building.

This building is being preserved and well worth seeing. There are beautiful paintings in the building done by local artists. One that really stands out is a mural being painted inside one of the old elevators. It is being done by Patricia Flyntz Croft. A local artist is the Wheeling area.

Thank Irene C
