"1888, Italianate style. Inventory: 01 1-1830-00062 Status: contributing.

Description: This is a rectangular two-story brick commercial building with a flat roof and parapet. The second floor has well-preserved Italianate-style details and an ornamental pressed metal bracketed eave cornice. There are smooth-cut stone windowsills, semicircular brick arches, and 111 wooden double-hung window sash. The three-bay storefront has a recessed central entrance and a side entrance with transom and glazed wooden entrance door to the second floor. The first floor three-bay storefront has been altered with non-historic display windows and central entrance door. There is a non-historic fabric shed awning supported on poles.

History: In the October, 1888 Sanborn map, a two-story stone building with brick front was recorded at this address. There was a grocery store on the first floor with club rooms on the second floor. The building was shown as the G. W. Roberts Clothing store in a historic photograph of Main Street from circa 1900. According to the 1909 city directory, Webb & Overfield, grocers, occupied 19 S. Main. In the July, 1912 Sanborn map, the building was recorded as a two-story brick building with a one-story rear wing.

Integrity: The building retains sufficient architectural integrity to be listed as a contributing resource."
