Newhouse Realty Building

The One-story Newhouse Realty Building represents the last gasp of mining magnate Samuel Newhouse’s attempt to create a south down-town commercial and financial center.  The building occupies the site of a theater-hotel project that was commenced but never got beyond foundation work.  Due to mounting financial difficulties, Newhouse was forced to scale back the project.  Within a year after the completion of this much more modest building, Newhouse was bankrupt.  Note the letter “N” engraved on the upper molding of the building.  Today, the Newhouse Realty building houses a variety of professional offices.
