This eight-story brick and terra cotta Roman Classical structure was, at the time of its construction, Norfolk's tallest building. Its interior features marble paneling, ornate columns, mosaic floors, rich woodwork and chandeliers. Ships moored in the harbor set their clocks by the rooftop "Time Ball" which was lowered every day at noon.
