Ankeny Building

Clinton, Iowa 52732, United States

Created By: Matt Parbs


Ankeny Building, 201-211 5th Avenue South; 1930; Harold Holmes, Architect, of Chicago; Daniel Haring, Contractor. Two stories in height, the building street facades are clad with cream-colored terra cotta panels. Upper story windows are steel and lass in a stylized "Chicago window" expression. Signs and some storefront revisions are the only changed to the original architecture. The building is a good local example of the so-called "Modernistic Style" or Art Deco Style. The terra cotta ornament is expressive of the Art Deco movement.
