Dixie Terminal Building Downtown

Designed by Garber & Woodward and completed in 1921, the Dixie Terminal Building sits on the SW corner of Walnut and 4th Sts. It was originally built as a streetcar terminal with shops and offices, including the Cincinnati Stock Exchange. It later served as a bus depot and is now an office building.


The facade includes tilework by Cincinnati’s own Rookwood Pottery. The interior arcade is a location in Rain Man, where Charlie finds out about the trust fund. Garber & Woodward were also involved in the design of the Vernon Manor Hotel in Cincinnati, which is another Rain Man location.
