Group of Commercial Blocks

-A A +A
c. 1890. South side of Lincoln Way at Courthouse Square

Though altered on the street level, these brick commercial blocks exhibit the usual wide array of designs used in the 1890s through the early 1900s. The three-story block, with its three sets of bay windows, looks to the classical tradition, while the others seem to be versions of the late Italianate in style.
