Ohio's most important Civil War building was the first of 14 constructed. The cornerstone was laid in June 1875 to honor 320 fallen comrades. The placement of Sgt. Baker in 1900 facing Ohio Avenue completed the building. An opera hall, seating several hundred, occupied the third floor. Buffalo Bill Cody and other performers graced the stage. Local fire and police departments, Sidney and Clinton Township offices, the public library and charitable groups have occupied the building. This gothic masterpiece was restored between 1995 and 2000.
