Pontiac's Oakland Towne Center

Whoa! As soon as you enter the historic downtown Pontiac area, you notice this gorgeous art deco building, the Oakland Towne Center. Formerly the Pontiac State Bank Building, it has been Pontiac's tallest building since 1929. Chief Pontiac, the leader of the Ottawa Indians in the early 1700's, is depicted in sculpture. The white terracotta accents at the top make it look very distinctive and gothic, begging one to explore the upper reaches of this unique skyscraper.
