Long Description:
The Downtown Waterville Historic District encompasses all of one block of Locust Street plus the west end of a second block and a few buildings along North and South Chelan Avenue. In all there are 17 contributing and 2 non contributing buildings in the district. All buildings are of brick, save for the Centennial Feed Building, a single storey wood framed building on the west side of North Chelan. The brick for the district was manufactured locally in brick yards, first established in 1889. The oldest structure in the district, on the northeast corner of Locust Street and Chelan Avenue, is the First National Bank/Kincaid/IOOF Block, constructed in 1891.

Mayor Malloy - it does have a bit of a nineteenth century Irish immigration ring to it. In truth the original owner of this building was once the mayor of Waterville, as well as an attorney. He had the little one storey brick building built in 1916 to house his law offices. One of the few dated buildings in the historic district, it was built with a dated sandstone keystone over the Roman arched entryway.

In more recent times this, the penultimate building in our tour of the Downtown Waterville Historic District, is a restaurant, the Checkered Tablecloth Café, primarily a lunch café which receives good reviews online.
