"Ca. 1883, Italianate style. Inventory: 011-1830-00150 Status: contributing.

Description: This is a rectangular two-story brick commercial building with entrances to the east. There is a low-sloping roof and parapet. Ornamental features include decorative Italianate window hoods and sills. Like the adjacent facade at 114 E. Wall Street, the eave is ornamented with brick belt courses, four recessed panels, a molded raised brick eave cornice and end piers. Second-floor double-hung windows with an upper fixed sash appear to be non-historic windows in the original openings. There are two glazed wooden entrance doors. A glazed panel in the door to the east to the second floor has been covered. Although a typical pattern has been retained, the storefront has been altered. Transoms have been covered and there is a non-historic awning.

History: According to the 1990 survey, this building and the adjacent building were not shown in a historic photograph of Wall Street from 1883. In 1884, this building's street address was 114 E. Wall Street; by 1888 it had been re-numbered as 116. According to the Sanborn maps this building has housed numerous businesses including a hardware and stove store (1884, 1888); cigar factory (1893, 1899); and pool room (1912, 1917).

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