Completed in 1918 by the First National Bank of Danville, this 12-story "fireproof" building was built at a cost of 0,000, and remained the home of FNB until 1955. The bank occupied the first floor, mezzanine and lower level. Upper floors were occupied by the offices of doctros, dentists, lawyers, stock brokers, and loan companies.

Listed on the National Register of Historic Places since 2000, Bresee Tower looks like a structure that is in bad need of repair. Vacant since 2005, in recent years barricades were placed on the south and east sides of the tower due to concern over falling debris. Today strapping and plywood is seen on the exterior to limit the potential of falling pieces of terra cotta.

Over the past two years, work has been completed to deal with the most hazardous aspects of the structure. While the future of this landmark remains uncertain, restoring and converting the property into some type of mixed use space is a possibility.

The City of Danville is the seat of Vermilion County, and is located in East Central Illinois near the Indiana border. The population of Danville was 33,027 as of the 2010 census.

More photographs of Danville can be found in my "Danville IL" set.


You are invited to stay and browse through my stream. Here's a quick index to my little corner of Flickr:

Automobile Photographs: This is a very large collection of images whose primary, but not exclusive, focus is on American automotive classics. Images are organized by decade, by manufacturer, and by topics (such as convertibles, station wagons, muscle cars, etc.)

Central Illinois (except Springfield): Central Illinois (except Springfield): Photos relating to the middle section of the "Land of Lincoln" (except for the Capital City of Springfield) may be found in this collection. Every city and town I've photographed is contained within its own set, and rural (as in "countryside") photographs are grouped by county.

Springfield, Illinois: All of my photographs of Springfield and the Abraham Lincoln Sites are in this collection. For the City of Springfield, there are separate sets for the Capitol Complex, Downtown (including the Old State Capitol), Neighborhoods, Parks, Illinois State Fairgrounds (and past State Fairs), and more. Photographs of Lincoln sites include the Abraham Lincoln Presidential Library and Museum, Lincoln Home National Historic Site, Lincoln Tomb, and so on. Also in the Lincoln "All About Abe" (Set) are a few Lincoln sites not located in Springfield.

The Illinois State Fair: My collection of photographs of the Illinois State Fair. The fair offers something for everyone. Grab a corn dog and lemon shake-up, and come take a look!

Beyond Central Illinois: Other locales in the United States and Canada including New York, Chicago, San Francisco and Seattle.

In addition to my location-based sets, here are links to some "topical" collections and sets I've put together:

Barbers & Barber Shops: Traditional barbers and barber shops are on the endangered species list. But there are still plenty to be found if you go looking for them.

Almost Everything Else. Check It Out!!!: Included topics range from man's first walk on the moon to small town schools and churches, and from Soft-Coated Wheaten Terriers (our favorite breed) to things that are abandoned, neglected, weathered, or rusty.
