Henry Gerhart Property

Clinton, Iowa 52732, United States

Created By: Matt Parbs


Henry Gerhart Property (Carstensen Storage Warehouse), 516-519 South 1st Street; c. 1855.Originally a three-story brick commercial building, it unfortunately has had additions of the fourth story and an expansion to the north. The ground-floor storefront is of cast iron and glass. Although altered by the addition of another floor and expansion, the building is significant with the retention of the cast iron ground-floor storefront and window pediments. This integrity of the lower stories is rare. The building is an excellent example of early river front commercial architecture that was once common-especially in St. Louis—and is now almost entirely demolished. The original building facade was an interpretation of Renaissance Revival Style.
