Long Description:

909-911 South Main Street; c. 1921; contributing
This is a one-story brick commercial building which represents the enframed window wall property type, with the façade finished in pressed brick with recessed mortar joints.    The building has three storefronts, above which is an upper façade ornamented with inset masonry detailing and capped with a parapet with a curvilinear centered pediment into which is set a decorative masonry block with a stylized shield set therein.  Storefronts have undergone some alteration but retain traditional window-to-wall ratio...

This building contained the McBride Auto Salvage Company and the Joplin Rubber Company in the 1920s.    In the 1940s and 1950s the first floor was occupied by the second-hand clothing store operated by Joseph Eisen.

– National Register Nomination

The building is in fair condition and is currently vacant.
