The building was designed with Gothic detailing by Charles A. Smith in 1926. After his firm failed in 1928, architects William and Arthur Fisher were commissioned to continue the construction. World War II caused further delays to the building's construction. In 1948, architect John Monroe was hired to complete the building.
