It seems every significant building in this area was built in this neo classical style mixed in with a little Greek Revival. This building, like the half dozen surrounding NRHP sites is comprised of a significant amount of relief work.

This one hundred and twenty-three year old Late Victorian building epitomizes what may be the best representation of frieze art in Camden. The detail is very impressive. Currently the structure is being rehabbed. The building was erected in 1886.

Another local NRHP, former bank site w/ heavy frieze art & relief work. This building has fallen into disrepair and is headquarters for the homeless. Many of these structures were worked on by the same people which accounts for their similarities.

The amount of frieze art & relief art @ this NRHP Carnegie is just beautiful & fairly typical of early 20th century Carnegie libraries. The outside friezes are about the only element which still exists in its original form & has not been destroyed.
