NESMITH – GREELEY BUILDING-1888
825 5th Avenue.
Except for the fire escapes, the face of this building retains its original appearance. Its Romanesque Revival style is revealed in its brick coursing and circular lower elements capped by simulated stone towers. The building was named for Thomas Nesmith and Major General Adolphus Washington Greeley. Nesmith was president of the Bank of San Diego and the Citizen’s Committee of 40 established in 1870.
