Summary

Significance: This structure was erected in 1884 towards the end of the Lafayette Square neighborhood's prosperous period. Its placement on the fringes of the neighborhood environs within a block of commercial structures, reflects the pattern of business growth that occurred in the area in the latter part of the 19th century. While slightly modified, the shell structure remains intact. The building exhibits traits of the vernacular classicism typical of the period's commercial structures.
