1919 - 1988Designed by architect Harvey Lochridge for Fred Markwell in 1914, but not constructred until 1919, the Jergins Building was originally named after Markwell. Built in the Beaux-Arts style, the six story structure contained a theater and offices. In 1929, the A. T. Jergins Oil Company added three floors and a penthouse, also designed by Lochridge, and renamed it the Jergins Trust Building. Despite efforts to preserve it, the Jergins Trust Building was demolished in 1988.
