200 East First Street

Architect: Albert Kahn, 1924

Renovated: SmithGroup, 2015

Above each of the arched windows along Harrison Street are relief figures representing knowledge, research, and literature. Along First Street, the reliefs represent science, art, music, printing, and engraving. Below the upper floor, windows are reliefs of prominent printers and the attributes of a free press. In 1978, a mural by Blue Sky, titled, “Overflow Parking”, was painted on the east façade. This building has been renovated into loft apartments and classrooms for the Michigan State University Extension.
