Then & Now: The Colonial

You may never have heard the name of this place, but if you have spent any time driving in downtown you will certainly recognize the landmark.

Built around the turn of the 20th century, it was known for 50 years as The Colonial — a discreet and charming apartment building on the edge of downtown.

Its classic and monumental street front has been a loved and valued landmark in every generation of the last 100-plus years.
