Pointed Question

Does anyone know what the center building was called and used for? I'm fascinated by it. I'm so glad the others are still standing. Thanks.

The fun is gone

All of the buildings on the left are gone, as is the large brick building in the center. But the Lafayette Hotel is still there, as is the Kleinhans building. Both are largely unchanged, externally.
