Notes
Survey number HABS ID-19
Unprocessed field note material exists for this structure (FN-15).
Building/structure dates: 1908 initial construction
Significance: The Montandon Building is significant as a good local example of a commercial building rendered in sandstone. The stone was quarried locally at Tablerock. Erected on a corner of a key downtown intersection, the Montandon was constructed six years after the neighboring Union Block. These are often grouped together and referred to as the "Fidelity-Union Block." The similar material and design of both make them especially compatible architecturally. The Montandon is a significant and prominent part of the downtown streetscape.
