Hadley Square Built: 1903
Architect: Isaac S. Taylor
100 ft. 7 floors
Former home of the Hadley Dean Glass Co.
A building whose powerful structure had to carry hundreds of tons of stored glass. The 1930 foyer decoration has Egyptian motifs etched in Vitrolite, a colored reflective glass. The building´s best features are its brick cornice and its overall restrain. There do not appear to be any outside modifications. Inside, the lobby has been modified and remains the most important feature of the building. The lobby is done in Egyptian style with glazed vitrious tile. An Egyptian chandelier by Tiffany is also in the lobby. The lobby was an addition about 1928.
