What is the meaning of the word kadoya ?
Kadoya (pronounced KAH-DOH-YAH) is a Japanese word comprised of two parts: kado for "corner" and ya for "house" or "building". Since the historic Tutt Building is one of a few remaining flatiron buildings in the USA, it is a perfect example of a building on the corner at Central Plaza.

Erected in 1890, the building is one of the most intact commercial structures in the downtown area with large display windows. This unusual triangular building’s twelve-inch thick walls are faced with red brick and decorative ironwork. The facade also showcases hand-crafted stonework.
