Summary

Significance: This structure is typical of a number of small-scale commercial buildings constructed in downtown Louisville in the early 20th century that are sheathed in architectural faience. The upper story has stylized Tudor Motifs which are typical of the interest in period revival of that time. The structure was originally built as a cafeteria and utilized a plaster material frequently used in auditoriums for acoustical problems.
Survey number: HABS KY-174
