Long Description:
This building is in good shape and is currently occupied by a Dance Studio.
Date of Construction: 1927

A two-story, stone masonry commercial building with a stuccoed exterior. Its northern elevation is divided into six bays and is its western elevation is divided into twelve bays. The first floor of the Main Street elevation features a plate glass storefront and display area surrounded by green and black glass panels. Its sandstone walls are supported by a sandstone foundation and covered by a flat, tarred tin roof.

This structure was constructed after a fire in the mid-1920's which destroyed all but the exterior walls of the earlier building, which was built in the 1870's. It was of a vernacular commercial style, as it was designed as a simple, functional department store building with a balanced, symmetrical facade on both of its corner elevations; however, it reveals Craftsman style influences in the twelve-over-one wood sash windows found throughout the second floor.
