John Nader, Architect
— 1887 —The Suhr Bank Building is an elegant example of the Italianate style applied to a commercial building. Designed by influential Madison architect John Nader, the building is of regularly coarse sandstone with a projecting cornice featuring pairs of scrolled brackets. The windows are ornamented with sandstone hoods and the main entrance has composite columns and a classical entablature. The building is also significant for its association with John Suhr, a German immigrant who established one of Madison's most successful early banks by serving the local German immigrant population.
