Project365: Day 53 - Jewel Box

Day 53 - Jewel Box, originally uploaded by Tim Bungert.

The Henry Adams Building in Algona, Iowa (also known as the Land and Loan Office Building) is one of architect Louis Sullivan's eight Jewel Box Banks in the Midwest. Constructed in 1913, this was the third of the eight Jewel Boxes to be completed. Though the building was never actually used as a bank it is included in the Jewel Box group. The building is now the home of the Algona Chamber of Commerce
