Summary

Significance: The 1905-1907 Nash Buildings are an important example of early modern commercial architecture, featuring functional design and structural and fire protection innovations. The buildings, designed by well-known Nebraska architect Thomas Roger Kimball, are also important for their historical association with M.E. Smith and Company, the region's largest dry goods firm and one of the city's important industries.
