Sunday in Iowa...

The Stapp Building on the square in Oskaloosa Iowa  

Part of the Downtown Façade Improvement project in Oskaloosa, Iowa and built in 1892, the Stapp Building was home to a series of drug stores from 1902 to 1989, and has housed several businesses since then.  The exterior has been completely restored.
It is considered a nice example of Victorian Era Queen Anne architecture, with a rounded "Chicago" window in the front, and a five-sided turret that marks the corner of the building. Seven, three-sided, flat-roofed oriel windows are spaced along the side of the building. 


  1. Neat looking building. I like the windows.

  2. Spectacular! Love Queen Anne type buildings. I'm waiting to win the lotto so I can buy a real Queen Anne house. So beautiful. 😃

  3. They sure don't make 'em like that anymore! 'Tis a shame.

  4. Them old buildings like that are the Greatest.
    If only I had lots of money I would turn that gorgeous building into a Bed & Breakfast place.
