Kanawha Valley Building - Where We Work

This is where we work. The Kanawha Valley Building is a "Grand Old Dame" of Capitol Street's historic Village District. The building was completed in 1929, just as the nation's economy plummeted into the Great Depression. How's that for timing?

Contrary to popular belief, the Kanawha Valley Building (not Laidley Tower or One Summers Square) is the tallest building in the city. Maple Creative and PrayWorks occupy the 13th floor of this historic office tower. SunTrust Bank is on the ground floor today and has the building's marquee. At one point in its history, Union Carbide Corporation occupied all but a few of the 20 floors. We thought you might like to see our humble abode.

Skip..The Kanawha Valley Building occupies the block of the former State Capitol Building...thus Capitol Street...which burned on January 3, 1921. For more color commentary, I encourge your readers to checkout my BLOG http://209capitolstreet.blogspot.com/.
