EAST MILWAUKEE STREET 109-111 1 Ryan Building (see photo below) F 1850-1853 1 113 Peters Block 849 The Ryan Building was built as the Mer- chants Hotel, and later became the Ogden House. The cream brick Greek Revival fa- cade was remodeled about 1892 with two metal-clad bays, and changes were made at the roofline. Some of the original win- dows are still visible on the east and west sides of the facade. Like the neighboring Ryan Building, this buildingihad its origins as a hotel. The first two stories were constructed in 1849, and three additional stories were added in 1855. The present facade dates from 1913 and the decoration is based on brick and glazed brick geometric motifs associated with the Arts and Crafts style. In the twentieth cen- tury, the building has been used for office and retail purposes. From right to left: the London Hotel, the Peters Block, and the Ryan Building. 192 EOLLAND'R JAS15VJLLU DItLECORYT. Mrs. E. T. Horne, PROPRIETOR OGDEN HOUSE, 24 El.
