Long Description:

105-109 E. Main Street:
Constructed in 1895 at a cost of $15,000, this two-story, Two-Part commercial building was originally the home of the Golden Eagle Department Store. The building has three separate storefronts divided by original brick piers with stone detailing. The 105 storefront was remodeled ca. 1945 and has red tinted carrara glass panels, aluminum and glass display windows and door. Across the storefront is a wood and metal canopy. Adjacent to the storefront is an entrance which leads to the staircase. This entrance has a 12-light glass and wood door added ca. 1940.

The 107 storefront has a recessed entrance with two ca. 1970 glass and metal doors. Transoms have been enclosed on this storefront and wood panels added at the bulkheads. An additional solid wood door leads to the second story staircase. Over the door are two original single light transoms. The display window of this storefront has been altered but retains some sections of stone bulkheads. The 109 storefront was altered ca. 1960 with brick bulkheads and metal and glass display windows and doors. The storefront's transom is covered with wood panels.

The upper façade of the building has rectangular one-over-one and six-over-six wood sash windows with added storm windows. Windows have stone lintels and sills. The windows in the upper facade of 109 E. Main Street have been enclosed with wood panels and two, single light windows. Above the windows is a soldier course belt course. At the roof line is an original sheet metal cornice with large brackets and floral panels.

– National Register Nomination

The building appears to be fairly good condition. It currently has a law office, a bistro and a jewelry store.
