"(1886; altered 1935)

This two-part commercial block building has simple details typical of Early Twentieth Century Commerical buildings. The tab brick second story has four 1/1 double hung windows with stone lugsills. They share a continuous lintel band of vertical brick stretchers. Above the windows is a large rectangular panel formed of raised brick headers. The stepped parapet roof has a plaque with “WIEDEMANN 1866”. The roof edge has stone coping. The storefront has a recessed, centered entry door with segmental arched top. It is flanked by display windows, also set within brick segmental arches. The display windows have wood paneled kickplates. There is a flat metal canopy across the storefront, with wood panels set within the transom area. A secondary entry leading to the upper story is at the north end."
