A wonderful insert into the Main Street line of buildings is this exquisitely detailed building. The facade is an elaborately articulated threestory Beaux-Arts triumphal arch with engaged, rusticated Ionic columns. The building was designed for a local bank by a firm of New York City architects which specialized in banks. The large banking room is behind the arch.
