History of the Pillot Building

The Greek Revival Pillot Building, with its cast-iron Corinthian columns, was built by Eugene Pillot in 1858. The building at one time was a bank, which is evident in the fact that the old vault still sits on the ground floor.

It also used to be home to barber shops, bars, lawyers, real estate agents, and even a hotel over the years. The building was owned by Pillot heirs until 1944.

By the early 1980's it was abandoned and in 1988 it collapsed. A year later the structure was re-built using as much of the original building as possible. Rather than trying to match new bricks to the old, the developers used a smooth surface to show what is old and what is new. In 1994, the Pillot Building was added to the U.S. National Register of Historic Places.
