About the Tyler Building

Our office moved into the historic Tyler Building located on Rankin, Walnut Street, Rankin and North Lexington Avenues in 2018. The Tyler Building was built in 1928 for W.W. Bernard and E.J. Tyler, designed by Henry I. Gaines. This 3-story reinforced concrete and steel garage / office building is faced with tan brick and trimmed with limestone. The building originally had auto entrances to all three floors. S.W. White was the Tyler Building’s first tenant, operating his automobile service station, Whites Service, on the first floor.
