Towers of St. Joseph: The Local Architecture of Harvey Ellis

Towers of St. Joseph- Architecture of Harvey Ellis

The St. Joseph  Convention and Visitors Bureau presents “Towers of St. Joseph: The Local Architecture of Harvey Ellis.” on display at the Buchanan County Courthouse from September 1st-September 30th.  Stop in and see five two-sided panels telling the history of Harvey Ellis and his contribution to local architecture. 

The exhibit highlights his designs of the German-American Bank Building and the Central Police Station, as well as the extravagant designs of the J.B. Moss, McNeely, McAlister, August, Nave, Smith and Tootle homes.  In the brief amount of time Mr. Ellis was here in the late 1800’s working for Eckel and Mann, he created some of the most impressive and notable architecture in all of St. Joseph.  Come see if you recognize any of his work from around town.  Access the driving tour  based on the exhibit at
