Late 19th to early 20th century. 7600 and 7500 blocks (west side) of Main St.

The core of Sykesville commercial district is Main Street north of the Patapsco River and the B&O railroad tracks, while its historic residential areas, with buildings dating from the late nineteenth century, are located on the surrounding hillsides. A two-block section of Main Street contains the most noteworthy commercial buildings, primarily built around the turn of the twentieth century. A group of two-story frame buildings at 7602–7608 Main share a cohesive storefront design with bay display windows, colored glass transoms, and a bracketed cornice between the first and second floors. At 7600 Main is the brick Colonial Revival former First National Bank (1907). The Warfield Building (1901; 7564 Main) is an orange brick Renaissance Revival design with monumental window bays.
