Alkemeyer Commercial Buildings

These two buildings were built between 1879 and 1884 and are located on Court Street near Vine Street. The buildings have been used for a millinery, shops, and apartments and are historically significant for their architecture more than for their use. The Lotze Building is located to the left on 19 Court Street and designed by William Walter for the heirs of inventor Adolphus Lotze. It is an Italianate Style building which is mainly used for apartments today. The other building to the right is a Queen Anne Style building located at 23 Court Street and is used as a clothing store today. Both buildings are on the National Register of Historic Places.
