The White Building in Syracuse

The White Building was built in 1876 by the White family, adopting the High Victorian Gothic style.  One of the most striking details is the use of two different colored bricks – somewhat reminiscent of the style of St. Pancras Station in London.   The White Building is also notable for other details:  the gargoyles, the sculpted entry and decorative brick work.  England is peppered with this style of architecture, especially in the Midlands, but this style is not commonly found in small cities in the U.S., making it all the more remarkable to find this building in Syracuse!Syracuse White Building 1873
