Commercial Building (Andrews Hotel, Dakota House Hotel)
This straightforward two-story building shows a commercial version of Greek Revival influence. Its hipped and decked roof is lined with pairs of shell brackets within a frieze band tucked under the eaves above uniformly spaced two-over-two windows. Window hoods and sills are emphasized by a wider horizontal trim board below the second-story sills, and most of a shed-roofed, post-supported porch survives, wrapping the corner. In all, this unassuming former hotel is not without a rhythm and aesthetic balance. The building was commandeered as an influenza clinic and hospital in 1918 during the Spanish flu epidemic. It is currently unoccupied and waiting a new use.
