Completed in 1900, this is Michigan's preeminent example of design by the internationally renowned architects, McKim, Mead and White of New York. The three-story Neoclassical structure features a white marble exterior with bronze window units. Among its superbly crafted interior features are carved Roman arched colonnades with bronze grill work and gold-leaf detail on the two-story high ceiling of the main room. In 1907 Peoples Savings Bank (established in 1871) merged with the State Savings Bank (established in 1833) and made this structure its home. Having outgrown these quarters by 1914, Peoples State Bank commissioned Detroit architects Donaldson and Meier to design the Congress Street addition. The building became the world headquarters of Silver's Inc. in 1980.
