Views of the elongated frontIn the 1920s this large structure was built as a girls' high school but in 1985 it was closed as a school and converted to an apartment building.
|The building is symmetrical with emphasis in the center and at each end. (Each end and the entrance are gabled.) It resembles ecclesiastical architecture (a rather mixed version!) with a rose window (Gothic), Romanesque arches, an entrance porch like an early Christian ciborium, and a dome like those on Byzantine churches. Brick and stone alternate in the dome and entrance canopy for decorative effect.|
