Daniel Burnham Skyscrapers and Dixie Terminal

Cincinnati, Ohio 45202, United States

Created By: Anne Steinert


Cincinnati is home to four late Daniel Burnham Skyscrapers. They are:

Union Central Bank and Trust/Schmidlapp Building/Bartlett Building - 1902

First National Bank Building/Clopay Building/Fourth and Walnut Center - 1903

The Fourth National Bank Building - 1905

and The Traction Building which we will see at our next stop.

All four buildings display the classic Burnham delineation of the facade as base, shaft and capital.

Dixie Terminal was built by Garber and Woodward in 1921. The building originally contained ticket offices for railroad companies, the Cincinnati Stock Exchange and the administrative offices of the Cincinnati Street Railway Company. It also served as the bus terminal for busses coming across the Roebling Bridge from Kentucky. Today it is an office tower.
