In 1981, the former Hotel Gerard was designated a national Historic Landmark. Designed in 1893 by famed architect George Keister, the façade is designed in a late Romanesque Revival manner, punctuated by Gothic and Renaissance details derived from German sources, marking the design’s rather unique expression (other architects drew from Italian and French sources) in a time of stylistic transition overall. In other words, it’s the picturesque combination of the late Romanesque Revival with German Gothic and Renaissance forms that makes the façade so interesting and magnificent.
