SALVATION ARMY CITADEL
How did Art Deco design of the "anything goes" Roaring Twenties find its beautiful expression in the Salvation Army Citadel, built in 1930? Perhaps because of its location here, at "Whiskey Point." The drama of zigzags, chevrons, flowers, sunbursts, and step-backs are all here on this most Moderne of downtown buildings. The "Point" included numerous "tasting rooms" and now marks the gateway to the redevelopment of S. Grove Avenue. Today, the citadel has a different mission as the Senior Services Building.
Adjoining the Citadel was Schneider’s Bowling Alley, a busy and popular place. Today the bowling alley has become offices.
