Architectural Description:

These are five small one-story commercial buildings that share common walls. All but four have ben stuccoed. The 1912 Sanborn map shows all five buildings, but the two easternmost were constructed of wood; by 1928 all appear the same on the Sanborn map.

Secondary Significant:  Structures are classified as Primary Significant if they were built in or between 1913 and 1937. These buildings represent the secondary period of construction and development from the increase of city improvements and auto traffic.
