The Kyle Building (also known as Kyle Block) was built in 1933 as a storefront. It is located at 215 Orleans St. in downtown Beaumont, Texas. The building contains 11 stores and has two story offices at both ends of the building. It is an excellent example of Zig-Zag Art Deco architecture.[1] It is located at the site of the Kyle Opera house, which was demolished in 1931.[2][3]
