The commercial district is among the best examples of a railroad community in Texas, laid out as a broad avenue running parallel to the rail line. Several buildings are strong contributors to the Historic District. The four-bay-wide, two-story Jacques Adoue Building (1884) at 506 Main Street has a cast-iron and pressed-metal front that set a high standard for the town. The Masonic Hall (c. 1890) at number 410 is another cast-iron and pressed-metal front commercial building with a chamfered corner entrance that addresses the major cross street.
