Slezak Hall (now Pagliai's Pizza)

1875. 302–304 E. Bloomington St.

This commercial building is composed of two parts: a second-floor meeting hall with store space below facing onto East Bloomington Street, and a three-story hotel block, set slightly back, that looks out on North Linn Street. Both sections have round-arched windows and bracketed entablature/cornices. Surmounting the cornice of the meeting-hall section is a false curved gable front. On the basis of present information it is difficult to know whether the hotel or the meeting hall and store section may have been built first.
