Long Description:
This building is mainly Second Empire - the only Greek Revival element would be the pediment at the top of central entry - the mansard roof, the roundrel windows, slate tile, and the dentilated quoins and cornice. I believe the first document is completely incorrect as to the style and the second has the order of importance incorrect.
