Built circa 1907, this building was once conjoined with the magnificent First National Bank on the northside. The restoration seemed impossible. Even when the ugly 1940s metal panel system was removed, only the windows remained to what was once a lovely late Victorian facade. By enlarging the detail on historic photos, the tile pent roof and storefront were documented and meticulously re-created.

The building is currently home to Starry Night Coffee Company and second floor offices.
