Building Description:

Benedum Trees Building, at 19 stories tall, was built in 1905. The building was commissioned by Caroline Jones Machesney, the society hostess and daughter of a banker. Designed by Tomas H. Scott, the building stands at 19 stories tall. It was originally called the Machesney Building, until 1911 when it became the headquarters of the Benedum Trees Oil Company. For the next 40 years, the fifteenth floor was home to the offices of Joe Trees and Mike Benedum. Presently, the building is the home to several foundations (including the Benedum Foundation), law firms, and other professional occupants.
