Title

45 State Street, Langdon Block

Creator

Carnahan, Paul

Description

Although many buildings in downtown Montpelier retain their original appearances, the look of this building at 45 State Street has evolved over time. Constructed in 1874 by James Langdon, this building originally housed the post office and other tenants. Toward the end of the nineteenth century a mansard roof was added to keep it in style. After the 1927 flood the first floor was sheathed in granite, creating an appropriately solid look for the Capital Savings Bank that occupied the first floor.
