Tecumseh Building - Abandoned

Tecumseh Building

The Tecumseh Building, also known as the Francis Drolla Building, is located in downtown Springfield, Ohio. It was listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 2000.

Designed by J.A. Poss and W.E. Russ and constructed by Francis J. Drolla Company in the early Commercial architectural style, the ten-story office building is faced with brick and cut stone.2 The 108-room, 102-foot tower opened in 1922 at a cost of $200,000.1 By 1926, the building boasted 41 tenants.

The Tecumseh Building was vacated in 1988 and placed for sale.3 Conceptual plans prepared by Shremshock Architects of Columbus in the early 2010’s called for the tower, rebranded as Rosewood Heights, to be rehabilitated into 37 one- and two-bedroom apartments.
