Long Description:

827 South Main Street; c. 1920; contributing
This one-story one-part commercial block brick building features a façade of yellow brick and a single storefront with the original brick bulkheads, display windows, and a recessed entry with a single door.  The original signband has been retained above the storefront.  The upper facade terminates in a distinctive concave parapet.  Otherwise the building exhibits a lack of notable architectural detail...

Early occupants include the Home Printing Company, a local job printing operation run by Charles Stearns and Ray Ledgerwood.    For decades it housed the Reliable Pawn Shop, owned and operated by Max Lewison.

– National Register Nomination

The building is in good condition and is currently occupied by a sharpening company.
