Rodríguez Store

-A A +A
c. 1890. E. Flora Ave. at 1st St.

This freestanding, two-story, buff brick commercial-residential building has two major street elevations with flat-arched door openings, and transoms guarded by metal bars. These elevations are delineated by two-story brick pilasters with molded brick bases in the Brownsville-Matamoros tradition. A timid, slightly projecting cornice gives the building an unfinished appearance atop. Vacated for many years, it was rehabilitated by the city for public use.
