The plaque reads:

THE DORILTON
THIS BEAU ARTS APARTMENT HOUSE WAS DESIGNED BY THE
ARCHITECTURAL FIRM OF JANES & LEO, AND COMPLETED IN 1902.
THE DORILTON WAS HOME TO LOCAL ARTISTS AND MUSICIANS
WHO APPRECIATED THE LARGE SOUND-PROOF ROOMS. THE

EMBELLISHED BY TWO ELABORATE LARGER-THAN-LIFE FEMALE
SCULPTURES AT ITS BASE. THE ENTIRE STRUCTURE IS CAPPED
