The Lollin Block, built in 1894, is the work of prominent Utah architect Richard Kletting. The building reflects Kletting’s preference for classical motifs. The building’s classical elements include Roman arches, dentil moldings, and egg-and-dart window trim. To make the building appear more expensive and substantial, gray plaster was applied over its brick superstructure and scored to look like cut stone. John Lollin owned the Lollin Saloon at 129 Main Street. He constructed this building as an investment property with an apartment on the third floor for his family. Members of the Lollin family lived there until 1960.
