1858. North side of Iowa 220, 2 blocks east of Iowa 149

The gable end of this one-and-a-half-story stone building faces the street. The proportions of the building, the pitch of its roof, the cornice with its eave returns, and the pattern of window and door fenestration are derived from the Greek Revival. The building was added to and remodeled in 1934.
