The iconic Conover Building in downtown Dayton stands at the intersection of Third and Main streets.
Built at the turn of the century, the 13-story building was designed by architect Frank Andrews, who also designed Dayton’s iconic Arcade.
This downtown building is the subject of this week's update to the popular Then & Now photo feature, which explores past and present views of notable Dayton locations.
In an old photo, automobiles zip down Main Street in between the eclectic Renaissance Revival-style building located diagonally from Montgomery County’s Old Courthouse.
For a period of time, the structure was called the American Building when it was purchased by American Savings and Loan. The company closed, and the building changed hands in 1921.
The building was added to the National Register of Historic Places by the National Park Service in 1975.
