Nahm Building - Bowling Green, KY

Nahm Building - Bowling Green, KY

422 E. Main St. (facing Fountain Square)

This Italianate building was built in 1888 as a new location for Emanuel Nahm's dry goods store. He claimed his store was the "largest clothing and gent's furnishings store in Southern Kentucky."

The Third floor windows have rounded hoodmolds and the second floor has flat hoodmolds, all placed in recessed panels. At the top of the building accentuating the Nahm name is a sunburst motif. The facade is faced with Bowling Green limestone and the building went through restoration in 1980.
