Long Description:

"155 N. Park Central Square, 1914. State Savings and Trust-Record Exchange (1920). A small two-story two part commercial block with simple Classical Revival detailing. The façade is sheathed with ornamental terra cotta, including a shaped parapet, a small cornice, and a band of trim around the second floor window opening. That opening has newer windows with some wooden infill, but no changes have been made to the opening itself. The ground floor storefront was infilled with brick in the 1970s or 80s. That infill includes a large arched doorway and very narrow windows. The storefront design significantly affects the historic character of the property, but the building is considered contributing due to the retention of second floor features and decorative terra cotta cladding." - Historic District nomination

The building originally served as a savings bank and trust building, it currently serves as a law office.
