Long Description:
From the NRHP Nomination Form:

5. 217 West Commercial Street; constructed after 1902 and before 1911. 217 West Commercial was the first building of fireproof, concrete construction erected in the district. Although the storefront has been altered, the upper portion of the primary elevation survives virtually intact. Within the past year, a corrugated metal sheath was removed and the rusticated cement block facade, with concrete lintels, quoins and ball finials, was chemically cleaned.
