"The Capitol Trust Building once had a three-story base. The first floor had an entrance door on the left with two rectangular windows. Three arched windows with keystones were on the second floor, and three square windows were on the third floor. This part of the facade was most likely terra-cotta, similar to that of the top of the building. (The AIA Guide to Columbus, Darbee and Rechie, 2008)
