Description
• Crowning the building is a gable-roofed penthouse.

• Inside, the lobby ceiling has decorative reliefs in the Art Moderne style. Figures of miners appear to hold up the ceiling of the banking hall, reminiscent of the coal-based economy which built the city in the industrial age.

• It features a massive base with a large entry arch. Rows of arches and corbeled arches decorate the building above the base and near the top.

• The Luzerne National Bank Building was designed in a Neo-Romanesque style.

- Tallest building in all of Northeast Pennsylvania

- Architect: Bertram Cunynham
