Virgil H. Goode Law Office

-A A +A
1827. 235 S. Main St.

This odd-looking two-story commercial brick building, now a law office, is entered through the central door in the first-floor storefront. On the upper story, windows flank a central entrance that was originally reached through a second-story porch that projected over the sidewalk; a side porch now gives exterior access to the upper floor. A front window, lighting the attic, is centered on a tall and narrow false front that obscures the gable roof.
