Abstract

The building, from 1929, was home to the S.H. Kress and Co. five-and-ten-cent store. It features a fireproofed skeleton with concrete floors poured in place and a brick and terra-cotta cover that makes the prettiest face in town. The terra-cotta trim and details, glazed and multi-colored, on the two almost identical facades (east and west) are this building's claim to fame. The eastside of Kress has the stairwell (treated like a column) and this facade is therefore slightly asymmetrical. Since 1980, the store has been closed. Listed on the National Register of Historic Places. This is the east facade. Title supplied by cataloger. Description supplied by Sape A. Zylstra.
