A 12-story, brick and stone sheathed, steel frame office building. Finished with a melange Renaissance and late Georgian Revival detailing. Corinthian column entrance, bas-relief figures of an Indian and a Puritan, carved by Daniel Chester French, recline on their elbows. First skyscraper in Providence to use the classical base-shaft-capital organization for tall buildings. Refurbished in 1981, additions and renovations were made in 1920, 1928, and in 1964. Greater Providence Trust Company acquired the building in 1982 for use of its banking headquarters and undertook careful restoration of this historic structure.
