Dixie Terminal.

Every Monday morning at work, we have our weekly status meeting. And every week, a randomly chosen handful of us are given a task to accomplish that week. Sometimes, it’s a group lunch or outing. Sometimes, it’s having to find an item or landmark around downtown. This week a group of us had to walk down to Dixie Terminal at Walnut and Fourth Streets and take a selfie in the long, street-level arcade with its jaw-droppingly gorgeous ornate ceiling…

The Dixie Terminal building was completed in 1921 and served as a streetcar terminal, stock exchange and office building in the Central Business District. The terminal was used for bus service after streetcar service ceased in the 1950s. The Cincinnati Stock Exchange closed its physical trading floor in 1976 after becoming an electronic stock trading exchange but remained in the building until relocating from Cincinnati to Chicago in 1995 and became the National Stock Exchange. Today, the building is home to Great American Insurance among other companies. 🙂
