Well worth the short drive off I-75, this is probably the nicest brick box you will ever see. Beautifully detailed with ornate terracotta trim, stained glass windows, and bold colored mosaic tile “Thrift” mural over the main entry, this is one of Louis Sullivan’s great small masterpieces. Situated on the corner of the midwestern town square across from the county courthouse, it documents what small town America was like 100 years ago. It is meticulously maintained and is pristine for it’s age. The building still houses the People’s Federal Savings and Loan Association, and is open to the public during regular business hours.
