Paddock Arcade

The keystone to the Public Square area is, without a doubt, the 1850 vintage Paddock Arcade. Recognized as the oldest continuously run pedestrian mall in the country, the building is said to have been inspired by the famed Beauharnais Arcade in Paris.  It was designed by architect Otis Wheelock, who also designed the First Presbyterian Church and the no longer standing Iron Block and Woodruff House. The 174 foot vaulted gallery, second floor offices, and a balcony overlooking the retail first floor give the Arcade its character.
