Long Description:
This building is in good shape and is occupied by a Title Service Company.

Date of Construction: 1914

A single-story brick masonry commercial building faced with dark tan bricks and trimmed with Batesville marble. It is entered via a single, central entry set into a beveled, plate glass storefront. It is supported by a sandstone foundation and covered with a flat, gravel and tar roof set behind a raised brick parapet coped with stone.

This building is reflective of the trend in the commercial design of the early automobile era toward more simple, two-dimensional facades which present a simply organized display era for signage and advertising that could be easily read from the street. However, the use of Batesville marble to imitate quoins and to otherwise ornament the facade indicates the residual influence of the Classical architectural styles.
