Description

The Samuel Kriegel Block, most often called the Kriegel Building was built by Samuel Kriegel (1854-1922) during the fall and winter of 1889 on the northeast corner of Third and Pearl Streets. Kriegel, a native of Germany, instructed the architects to create a building in the German Romantic style of 19th century Germany. The building was one of the most exuberent buildings in Ellensburg. Instead of an actual turret type tower, as is on the Davidson Building, the Kriegel tower had a raised center section topped by a cupola. The bulbiform dome and finial, gave the tower a massive impressiveness that was carried throughout the entire building.A supplement to West Shore (magazine) commissioned by Leonhard & Ross of Ellensburgh, Washington. A 24 1/2" x 34 1/2" poster of the Ellensburgh building built or being built after the July 4th 1889 fire. Twenty-six buildings or blocks illustrated.
