The Barr Building

I don’t know if it’s obvious, but I really like architecture, even if I don’t always know the proper words to describe what I’m looking at. Our walk around Fountain Square in downtown Bowling Green was a real treat for me, because there were so many gorgeous buildings to admire. As is usually the case, one building, in particular, really caught me eye…the Barr Building


It’s really quite a small little building, and rather dwarfed by its neighbors on either side. But the level of detail on it is stunning:

The Barr Building was built in the 1890s in the Italianate style, and features an iron clad facade. Both stores and offices have occupied this building over the years, and the current tenant, Barbara Stewart Interiors, has called this space home since the 1970s.
