Walk and Talk tour of Cottingham & Butler Building (Security Building)
800 Main St, Dubuque, Iowa 52001

Originally built as Stampfer’s Department Store, the Cottingham & Butler Building (Security Building) has been a crown jewel of Main Street since it was built in 1896. The building’s cream-colored terra cotta and elaborate Beaux-Arts style ornament have been lovingly restored by the Butler family and has given us a glimpse of what Dubuque looking like during the Gilded Age. The building’s designer, Fridolin Heer, was one of Dubuque’s most prominent architects and also designed the Dubuque County Courthouse and the Town Clock. We’ll explore the history of this building, how it was constructed, and the recent efforts to return the building to its original glory.
The tour will begin at noon in the Cottingham & Butler Building lobby. There is a suggested $5 donation.
