Long Description:

"210 E. Walnut Street - Built ca. 1905, this five-story brick building replaced an earlier two-story building at this site. The storefront was remodeled ca. 1970 and has aluminum and glass display windows, stuccoed bulkheads and transoms, and a central entrance with an aluminum and glass door. Window openings on the second, third, and fourth floors are rectangular in design and separated by brick pilasters with egg and dart capitals.  Dividing each floor are stone water tables. The central and comer brick piers have quoins. The fifth floor windows have segmental arches. At the roofline is a terra cotta cornice with acanthus leaf brackets" - Historic District nomination

The building has recently been restored and converted to residential loft apartments.
