Built in 1912, the Montague Building is a representative early 20th century commercial building. The architectural style of the Montague Building is an interesting combination of the practicality of the then emerging commercial style of architecture on the pedestrian level with the restraint of the Neoclassical Revival style on the upper two stories. This combination of business practicality with the security of classical forms is probably reflective of the mood of the city in the early 1900s. The building has served as commercial and office use since its construction, and was used to administer WPA programs during the Great Depression. It continues to be used for commercial and office purposes following its restoration in the mid-nineteen eighties. CAP holds a facade easement on the building.
