Beside the Town Hall, two commanding, flank-gabled blocks of three stories mark the commercial center of the town. As in the smaller, two-story Forestdale block, granite piers and lintels frame the storefronts. (At Forestdale, however, shop windows and doors are more deeply recessed, thereby intensifying the structural and sculptural properties of their enframement.) The upper stories are red brick (painted on one building and corbeled at the cornice), their windows trimmed in granite at sill and lintel. The brick wall up front is neatly morticed into side walls of random masonry which also enclose the rear.
Extending in a long curve away from the commercial blocks are six two-and-one-half-story, gable-roofed, four- and five-bay duplexes, now re-sided. Some or all of them probably predate Slatersville as a textile village, but all were used as workers' housing.
