Friedlein Building

-A A +A
c. 1850s. 370 Priam St., southwest corner of Priam and 3rd streets

This mellow yellow-tan limestone building was constructed as the town's first hotel. The two-and-a-half-story, gable-roofed form and the placement and proportions of the windows indicate a vernacular continuation of the Federal tradition. Next door is a small two-story stone building which was planned as the bakery for the hotel.
