This is a finely crafted example of Classical Revival, the style that characterized federal projects of the 1920s. The building features six round-arched windows on the ground floor and a balustrade and parapet with garland panel on the second. The elaborate entrance portico has rusticated engaged columns and a classical entablature and balustrade.
