Schall's Candy Company

Clinton, Iowa 52732, United States

Created By: Matt Parbs


Schall's Candy Company (Hagge Building/Valley Pattern Broadcasting-KLNT/KLNQ), 501 North 2nd Street; 1917; Haring Bros., Contractors.A large, two and one-half story building, it was built as the office and factory for the Shall'' Candy Company. It now houses the broadcasting studios and offices for the Pattern Broadcasting Company (Radio Station KLNT and KLNQ). The brick exterior walls are enlivened by the application of terra cotta medallions, projecting string courses, and general ornamentation.Although the clutter of signs and the window alterations are disturbing, the building still retains the important Sullivanesque appearance as originally built. Inspired by the ornamentation designed by Louis Sullivan (who was the architect for the Van Allen Building at 5th Avenue South and South 2nd Street), the terra cotta work on the building is exuberant and delightful-especially the large motif above the main entrance. The building is a good example of a creative and highly American design period in architecture.
