Long Description:

124-126 S. Wood. J. C. Herms Building, 1884. [c]
A large two part commercial block, with two bays on the ground floor and six large windows on the upper level. The Herms Building occupies a corner lot, and has a long side elevation that faces south to Main Street. This building and the smaller building directly north of it were built at the same time, and the facades feature very similar styling and architectural detailing. The upper facade is faced with the same type of smooth red brick used on the building next door, and the smooth limestone accents found there are also similar. The second floor of the Herms building facade is filled with a row of six large windows which appear to be original. The windows are set into segmental arched brick openings, between which are set limestone panels that are adorned with small carved rosettes. A brick corbel table runs along the facade above the window arches. The early cornice is missing. The 1 / 1 wood windows have flat tops, and small wooden panels fill the arched tops of the masonry openings. Each window panel is accented with a small wooden rosette. The lower part of the building is like the others in the group, with a metal panel between the sills of the second floor windows and the top of the open display windows and doorways on the lower part of the first floor. The bulkheads below the windows are faced with thin layers of stone, and the piers between the bays are faced with very small ceramic tiles, all of which date to the late 1950s or early 1960s.

– National Register Nomination

The building was used as a furniture store for many years. It is recently been restored and is in excellent condition. It is currently used by computer company and staffing company.
