-A A +A
C. L. Bradburn Building, Knights of Pythias Hall
1890, F. C. French. 111–113 Main St.

The three-story, seven-bay building has detailing popular on cast-iron-fronted buildings from the 1870s. Small Corinthian columns separate the bay windows on the second story and punctuate the third-story windows. The building is topped with a parapet, a tablet with the building's original name, and a diminutive pediment. The first-story storefronts have been modernized.

An equally ornate four-story, buff brick building, the Option House (1901; 41 Main Street), is three bays wide and has a balcony above the first story, lions' heads at the cornice, and foliated limestone trim and dentils.
