Lamella Roof 5401 Harrisburg (Old Willisville Bank)


Recommended Posts

Hi there, 

Looking for a few facts about an old building. Hoping someone on here can help. 

Here's what I know: 

Original family owned this building from 1920s off and on til the late 1990s

Was previously a gas station, a warehouse/facility for commercial & auto batteries

Property consist of 2 buildings, the original building and a long metal building. 

Second floor was added on after the 1920s (not sure date)

Roof Structure is a Lamella Roof Design with tension cables tying the base together. I haven't confirmed the architect, but Gustel Kiewitt did the design of this type of roof structure.


Here's what I'm looking for: 

age of roof structure

architecture/engineer of roof structure

what other building uses of the building
