Long Description:

Haughton Block; 824-826 South Main Street; 1891; contributing

This is a two-story two-part commercial block brick building with altered storefronts and a finish of decorative polychrome brickwork.   The upper façade is four bays in width with segmental-arched fenestration, jack-arch caps, and cast iron lintels; windows contain replacement sash units. The façade is capped with a corbeled brick and pressed metal cornice.

This building originally included lodge hall facilities on the second story.  Other upper-floor uses include the Eureka Hotel, operated by Mrs. Ella Stanley; it was later known as the Eureka Flats, indicating that the hotel space had been converted to apartments.  Historic retail uses include Nathan Filler’s army surplus store in the 1920s and the McMillan Music Company in the 1930s. Eventually it housed the Newman Furniture Outlet, a division of the Newman Mercantile Company under the management of Mark Ettinger, Chairman of the Board, B.J. Newberger, president, E. B. Berkowitz, vice president, and Sol Newman, Jr., secretary-treasurer.  

– National Register Nomination

The building is in fair condition and is currently occupied by a comic book and game store.
