Robert Scott's Block

-A A +A
1885. 2nd and Market sts.

This commercial building is a tangible reminder of how the coming of the railroad in 1869 brought a boom and allowed the easy import of varied architectural materials and styles. The brick building shows sprightly decoration of black and white glazed bricks, white marble, and polychrome ornamental tile.
