NRHP Registration Form

"The front of the building faces south onto W. Main Street and exhibits ornate Romanesque Revival detailing. The large round-arch opening dominates the south elevation and defines the middle bay of the facade's 3-part configuration. The arch features a large keystone and red bricks that contrast with the buff-colored brick walls. Under the arch, two doors flanked by fixed transoms and capped with a fanlight provide primary access into the building. A large masonry pier with stucco finish divides this central bay into two sections. The outer bays, on either side of the entrance, are virtually identical. Each has a set-back panel with stucco finish at the base, a single display window, and a large multi-light transom. A flat arch with a keystone caps each of these openings. The parapet consists of both red- and buff-colored brick and features a 3-part stepped composition. Brick piers with corbeled bases define the central portion above the round arch, while a decorative garland band extends across the mid-section of this bay, and corbeled brickwork caps the top. The outer portions of the parapet also feature corbeled brick and brick piers at each end."
