Significance: The Field-Pacheo Complex is a commercial and residential complex covering half a block. The two-story, brick corner Field-Pacheco building was built after 1894 as a combination store and residence and is superb as an example of its type. The building still retains its original two-story veranda with jigsaw brackets, spindle cornice, and spindle railings. The veranda creates a covered walkway along the street facades of the building which opens onto the walkway through ten arched doorways. Former servants; quarters, a carraige house , an upholstery shop and a garage adjoin or relate to the site of the Field-Pachecho building. Three small living quarters or residences lie on the property line, which is marked by a brick wall in a ruinous condition.
