Long Description:

"154 N. Park Central Square, 1914. Nathan Clothing Company (1914). A large two-story brick two part commercial block with Craftsman styling. Located on a prominent corner of the square, the building has two main elevations, the south, which faces the square, and the west, which faces Central Park North. Each of those walls has a small bracketed terra cotta cornice and a band of large windows at the second floor. Those multi-light wood-framed windows are original and in good to fair condition. The lower level of the façade and the front bay of the side wall have open storefronts that are early but not original. A large metal framework atop the building has been used for signs throughout its history. The sign has a tall narrow torch to each side." - Historic District nomination

The building originally served as a clothing store and then various other businesses.  After being vacant for a while it is now under renovation to become the Springfield/Greene County History Museum.
