Listed in the State Register of Historic Places

Designed by State Architect Arthur Peabody, the Wilson Street Office Building is an extraordinary representation of the Art Deco Style of architecture. Built in three separate stages, 1930, 1938 and 1959, the symmetrically massed structure has a granite facade with bas-relief Art Deco ornamentation. The first floor public hallways are adorned with bronze lamps, stylized floral ceiling borders and bronze letter boxes and directories. The lobby is decorated with Royal Red, Appalachian Fossil Gray, Appalachian Dark, Kesota Yellow, and Westfield marbles.
