    George Grant Elmslie, Architect

    by pumpkinheart Updated Apr 4, 2011

    For admirers of the Prairie School, there are five nicely preserved examples of commercial buildings designed by George Grant Elmslie. The Old Second Bank Building is marvelous, both inside and out. There have been a couple of additions and renovations, but they have been happily consistant with the original theme. it seems that the Prairie School and banks found a nice fit because there is another Elmslie-designed bank in Aurora (although it's no longer a bank), plus a funeral chapel and two office buildings.
