Awnings cover the entrances to the retail shops on Main Street. A three-story brick building on the corner has ground-floor retail shops and residences above. A decorative freize runs in bands above the floors and a window sign advertises clean, modern rooms from 50 to 75 cents. Dickinson Drugs is on the corner; next to the drugstore is Karl's Shoes with Murray's Men's Shop two doors down.
