Long Description:

813-815 South Main Street; c. 1919; contributing

This one-story enframed window wall brick commercial building has three storefronts, altered but retaining traditional window-to-wall ratio.  Brick surfaces are finished with recessed mortar joints.    The upper facade incorporates small light-colored masonry trim blocks and a parapet with a curvilinear centered pediment with a stylized shield centered therein...

Early occupants include a restaurant operated by William Vangel and second-hand shops run by Louis Eisen and Samuel Tish.    Its longest occupant was Ben Milgrim, whose pawn shop was located here from 1933 until 2003, the longest continuous occupant in the district.   

– National Register Nomination

The building appears to be in good condition. One to the building is occupied by jewelry store and the other two thirds are currently vacant.
