Long Description:

811 South Main Street; c. 1915; contributing

This is a single-story enframed window wall brick commercial building with a single storefront with tile bulkheads; the traditional window-to-wall ratio has been maintained, with display windows and recessed entry.    The upper facade terminates a stepped parapet.    The building exhibits no other notable architectural detail.  

First occupied by the Holbrook Auto Repair Company and in the mid-1920s by the Liggett-Pool Battery Company, manufacturers of Missouri Batteries.  In the late 1920s and 1930s it housed the Tri-State Fixture Company, purveyors of store fixtures and by the 1950s it housed the Sewall Paint and Varnish Company. 

– National Register Nomination

The building is in good condition and is currently used by a billiards table sales company.
