Gothic Revival

The Gothic style dictated the use of structural members in compression, leading to tall, buttressed buildings with interior columns of load-bearing masonry and tall, narrow windows.

Completed in 1929

The number of new Gothic Revival buildings declined sharply after the 1930s.

English Influence

Gothic Revival (also referred to as Victorian Gothic or neo-Gothic) is an architectural movement that began in the late 1740s in England.
