Significance: The Pritchard Building, built for and initially operated by one of Waterbury's older and wealthier families, is one of three city buildings built in the Richardsonian Romanesque style. The building's textured masonry is bold, and the visual effect of alternating granite and brownstone is dramatic. The design is attributed to the prolific Connecticut architect, Joseph A. Jackson. Perhaps more valuable than the individual significance of the Pritchard Building is its place within the Bank Street Historic District: a contiguous row of large, multi-story buildings set close to the sidewalk, highly decorative and diverse in style, yet closely related in size, scale, and materials. Together the four buildings are typical of Waterbury's commercial architecture at the turn of the century. They also represent the city's prosperity and its economic growth during that period.
