Italianate Style (1878)

The Vaughan family, using income from their paint & hardware store and livery stable, selected John Hasecoster to design this building. Italianate style, 1850 to 1890s, is characterized principally by elaborate windows, cornices, quoins, and large eave brackets. The building displays all of these features. The building was originally capped by a large bracketed cornice, as shown here.
