Cass Gilbert, architect of the State Capitol, designed the Endicott Buildings as an arcade to wrap around the Pioneer Press Building, then under construction at Fourth and Robert streets. The Italian Renaissance facade with floral designs carved in red sandstone earned early appreciation form the historic preservation movement. But misguided efforts to clean a century's accumulation of soot from the facade taught preservationists the painful lesson that sandblasting can damage fragile details.
