It is a standalone three-story building, with basement, at the corner of Fourth Avenue North and West Broadway Street in Lewistown. Up to the ceremonial placement of the building's cornerstone on August 20, 1908, almost all of the stonecutters, masons, and others involved with its construction had come from the nation of Croatia, including Peter Tuss, the stonemason who was the contractor for the building's construction.[2]
