The Syndicate Building:

 

This commercial Italianate building was built in 1903 by a group of local men who got together at the turn of the 20th century to invest in property in the first block of our main street-hence its identifying name.

The facade of the small building is architecturally interesting in that it contains the same size bricks for all features, with no stone or concrete embellishments.

The arrangement of T -shaped corbelled brickwork between saw-tooth belts over four small circular window openings is especially interesting.

While not publicly identified, evidence suggests that Jacob Davis, long-time owner of Davis Hardware in this block was one of the investors. He came to Perrysburg from Buffalo, New York, in 1879, served in the Union navy before that during the Civil War, and was a village councilman, school board member, and president of the Citizens Banking Company.
