Facts

  • Burnham's design was influenced by the City Beautiful Movement, which was inspired by Roman Classicism. This influence can be seen in the building's white color and classical detail.
  • Of particular interest is the multi-colored ceiling in the banking hall.
  • The large green Mellon Bank sign on the roof was replaced in October, 2002.
  • The three bays on the building's southeastern side are a 1926 addition.
