Decorative Details/Unique Features:
On the side of the building along Charles Street (along the front facade of the building), there are large single pane commercial sized windows. There is also a large covered entrance portico that is integrated into the structure of the building on the front facade. This wing of the building appears to only be one story. The secondary entrance on Hunter Street is not as large. This entrance is cut into the first story with a second story overhang. The windows on this side are smaller transom sized windows that are located higher up on the first story.

Evidence of Construction Date:
This property had a building on it starting in 1963 (Land Tax book) but in 1970 (Land Tax book) the value of the building dropped from $260,000 to $30,000. It can be assumed that the original building was severely reduced. From 1970 on for the next couple of decades the property was going through continuous construction. Evidence of this is shown in the Land Tax books from 1970 through 2008 where the monetary amount of the building increased at a steady rate over that 38 year range. I believe that the beginning of what this current building is began in 1970.
The second story of the building does not contain windows so it may be used for storage or as an attic.
