Century Building (Real Estate Building)

-A A +A
Real Estate Building
1907. 2–8 N. Main St.
  • (William E. Fischer, Jr.)

The Century Building exploits its triangular corner site to the hilt, placing its entrance on the apex beneath a deeply projecting bay. The planning is splendidly lucid: well-lighted shops below and four floors of apartments above, generously illuminated by bay windows.
