"Commercial Building Status: Contributing
Address: 415 N COMMERCIAL ST
Date of Construction: 1915 (Estimated)
Parcel ID: 195-15-0-20-14-014.00-0
Historic Function: Commerce/Trade - Specialty Store
Current Function: Commerce/Trade - Professional
Architectural Classification: Commercial Style

This one-part commercial block has a non-historic aluminum-framed storefront with a flush center entrance flanked on each side with two-part display windows. The transom opening is covered with painted plywood. Stone blocks accent the piers that frame each end of the primary façade. Otherwise, belt courses of soldier and header brick provide the only other embellishment to the primary façade.

There was a one-story millinery here in 1884, 1888, 1893. By 1899, the building had been converted to a lunch counter, later a bakery. It remained in 1905 and 1911. The building had been expanded to the west by 1923. The expansion likely corresponded with modifications to the facade, which remain today.

This building is classified as a contributor because it retains an open storefront. "
