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.

111 West Locust was the site of "a series" of wood frame buildings until the construction of the present building on the site in 1922 at the earliest. Whie the brickwork on the facade remains intact, it's apparent that the actual storefronts of the two bay building have been completely altered, today filled mostly with cedar shingles, vinyl windows and contemporary steel doors. The brickwork, not particularly elaborate, remains in reasonably good condition.

The eastern half of the building is presently home to a beauty salon; the western half appears to be empty.
