Long Description:
"109 E. Park Central Square, ca. 1909. Walk-Over Boot Shop (1920). This building may have been built in the late 1800s; that building was either replaced or remodeled to the current form ca. 1909. It is a three-story two part commercial block with Classical Revival styling and limestone walls. The storefront is made of new materials with original openings. The 1/1 windows are modern, but similar to the originals and a good fit for their openings. The roofline features an ornamental stone balustrade that is early or original, and most other facade detailing is intact." - Historic District nomination.

The building served as a boot shop for several years. The building is now used as an art gallery and loft apartments.
