Significance: Curto's Place is a typical late nineteenth-century storefront that contains a bar of exceedingly high quality. It was built in two stages, in 1895 and then in 1900. Elaborate plaster ceiling decorations, and a vigorous back bar, provide a setting for the highlight of the bar: a stained glass canopy over the large central section of the back bar. This may be a unique survival of the most elegant of saloon design. Historically, the bar is significant in that it has been owned and operated by only two families since its erection.
