Karrick Building

This red brick building caught my attention after looking at the beautiful facade. I looked it up and found that this building was constructed in 1887 by Lewis W. Karrick who made a considerable fortune from mining interests.
The architect Richard Kletting is recognized for designing the State Capitol Building. (You may remember that he also built the Fisher Mansion) The building also housed a gambling hall and apartments for eight prostitutes who lived on the second floor.
