Arcade Weybosset St. facade 1976


Built by Russell Warren and James Bucklin in the Greek rectilinear temple style, the Arcade is replete with Ionic columns at either end. After falling into disrepair, it was rehabilitated by architects Irving B. Haynes & Associates and Gilbane Properies, and reopened in 1980.

Its three-stories were host to a diverse array of tenants including a number of primarily weekday lunch restaurants on the ground floor and a jewelry shop, a sci-fi/fantasy book shop, and local non-profits on upper floors.

It was declared a National Historic Landmark in 1976.
