Significance: This is one of the most elaborate commercial buildings of its size in the city. The structure is an excellent example of creative eclectic design. Segmental arches above the second floor windows are hoods for the highly decorative lintels over the windows. Basically cream city brick trimmed with stone, the building's most distinguishing characteristics are its cylindrical bartizan, with oversized brackets, and the cupola over the entrance. Supported by two huge pilaster/brackets, this cupola displays the owner's name, the date of construction, triangular gables and an iron finial atop its ogee-mansard roof.
