Bank Building, Corner of Jefferson and Washington

Nicknamed the Building that is Impossible to Photograph, this former bank building is now a government office.Reflecting the changing uses and architecture of the western edge of town, and perhaps replacing one of the structures demolished in the clearance of the Mill Creek Valley, it cuts a unique profile across the intersection.The blue paint may not be original, but I am not sure.
