One of the state’s most elegantly rendered Art Deco buildings, in a blend of that style with the Gothic Revival, the stone-faced commercial building with spiky roofline and intricate recessed entry was the product of the office of Northup and O’Brien, which was headed by George Watts Carr of Durham in the 1920s; after that office closed in 1929, Carr completed the building as part of his own practice. Further information is sought about the various architects’ roles in the design.
