Description:
This brick two-part commercial block occupies a corner lot and has two primary elevations - east and north. The building reflects a mid-twentieth century Modern Movement remodel whose character-defining elements include: buff brick facing; the stone parapet coping; a horizontal band of aluminum screen panels spanning both primary elevations covering the upper-story window openings; the applied metal band over the first story and spanning both elevations; polished stone panels cladding on the first-story walls; and the visor awning over the canted corner entrance. Missing sections of applied metal panels on the canted corner wall reveal original window openings on both stories.

History:
There was a two-story bank building here by 1884. The building continued to house a bank for much of its history. The building was updated in the early twentieth century with a new blond-brick facade, then again in ca. 1960. The current appearance reflects both the 1920s and ca. 1960.

Integrity:
The majority of the features on this building date from a ca. 1960 overall design change, within the district’s period of significance. Therefore, the building is classified as a contributor."
