Municipal Building (People's Bank and Trust Company)

-A A +A
People's Bank and Trust Company
1916. 319 N. Main St.

North Main Street to 5th Street is lined with twentieth-century stores, many of their facades modestly decorated with geometric patterns executed in stock brick. Most distinctive is this former bank that embeds a classical pediment in a tall single-story building of rough-faced yellow brick that otherwise employs abstract patterns. The entrance has been modernized.
