Long Description:

"222 Park Central North, ca. 1890. Salvation Army (1920). A three-story two part commercial block with painted brick walls, a flat roof and simple late Victorian styling. The ground floor has an open storefront that is early but not original; it has open display windows with newer wooden sheathing at the transom and bulkheads. The upper two floors of this corner building are filled with evenly spaced windows that are covered with plywood. The window openings, which are intact, have segmental arched tops and cast iron sills, and those on the second floor of the façade have ornamental metal lintels as well. Sanborn maps indicate that the building had a cornice along the top of the façade prior to 1933; there is currently only a simple band of molding a few feet below the roof line. The current storefront may have been installed about the same time the cornice was removed, and those appear to be the only changes of note since then." - Historic District nomination

The building served various commercial purposes until 1920 when it used by the Salvation Army for a period of time.  The building is now used by a Chinese restaurant
