Description 

The Arcade, major work of Springfield area architect, Charles Cregar, comprises what is the largest remaining expanse of nineteenth century commercial facade in downtown Springfield. Only eight glass-roofed shopping arcades were built in Ohio. The Arcade in Springfield is the earliest example of this building type remaining in Ohio. ... Another important aspect of the Arcade is the fact that the building is an early example of a mixed use structure. It once housed a train station, an office building and commercial spaces. This combination of commercial space with hotel rooms created a partial consumer base for the commercial establishments located within. -- Historic American Buildings Survey
