Annex Building–Opera House

-A A +A
1903, Lyman Robison, builder. 505–507 Main St.

Even in a row of fine Victorians with strutting cornices, this exuberant Neoclassical brick, stone, and metal composition stands out. The tripartite facade is distinguished by a bracketed broken cornice with a central pediment. The second story, whose triple-arched central window is flanked by paired windows and pilasters with granite shafts, contains an opera hall with a proscenium stage and a balcony under a skylighted, pressed metal ceiling.
