The Old Bank of Louisville is a National Historic Landmark in Louisville, Kentucky. Completed in 1837, it was made of brick and limestone. Of United States small-scale commercial architecture, it is considered one of the most sophisticated. The narrow downtown lot saw classical idioms adapted to it. Its monumental distyle-in-antis doorway is particularly notable. It was originally thought to be designed by Gideon Shryock, but instead was designed by James H. Dakin. Shryock was construction superintendent for the project.
