Sunday Snapshot: Hamblin Building in Ottawa, Kansas

The Hamblin Building is one of my favorite buildings in historic downtown Ottawa. I’m still exploring the history of this building, which once housed People’s National Bank and is rumored to have been one of the first buildings architect George P. Washburn was hired to work on after arriving in Ottawa (he did carpentry work). I love the lines and course stonework as it curves around the block.
