Victoria was an important crossroads and railroad town, and the site of the now-demolished Virginian Railway shops and roundhouse for the region. One of the remnants of the railroad yards is the large water tank (Main and 8th streets) for the steam engines of the railroad. The commercial Main Street has mostly one- and two-story red or buff-colored brick buildings dating from the early twentieth century. They feature an occasional metal cornice and the era's typical brickwork of shallow panels above the second story, corbeling, and dentils.
