The Hollenbeck Building:

 

One of the best early 20th century commercial buildings in Perrysburg is the one at 106 Louisiana and built as an investment by D. K. Hollenbeck in 1903.

Daniel Kidder Hollenbeck settled here between 1868 and 1878 and practiced law for more than 60 years. He was born in 1834 and was a school teacher before being admitted to the bar in 1857 and practicing for many years with his uncle, Francis Hollenbeck. When Francis died, D. K.'s brother, F. E. Hollenbeck, came here from New York to be his law partner.

In 1903 Mr. Hollenbeck bought the lot next to what is now Houck's Drug Store for his building.

The J. Davis Hardware was the first occupant, remaining there until 1923 when the store was called Perrysburg Hardware.

The building is of brick, stone, iron and tin, and since its construction, a second entrance has been added.

The most noticeable characteristic of the building is the set of eyelike windows in the front second story, surrounded by an egg and dart motif which is also carried out on the first story pilasters. The cornice across the top story also features dentils and there are cast iron columns in the interior.
