101 North Old Woodward

This structure was built in 1896 by Frank Ford, who built the Ford-Peabody House in 1878. The corner was occupied by Levinson's Department Store from 1897 to 1916. Two smaller businesses occupied units at the extreme west and north ends. The First State Savings Bank followed Levinson's in the corner space.

In 1925, the Ford Building was clad in limestone with typical pre-depression bank details. In 1935, after the Birmingham State Savings Bank failed, the Wilson Drug Company moved in and remained there until 1979.
