     Hittle Block

828-832 East Main Street

Italianate style (1878)

Local realtor, Omar L. Hittle, commissioned Architect John A. Hasecoster to design the three story Hittle Block. Mr. Hittle and his wife lived in an apartment on the second floor for several years, and old newspapers report lavish Christmas par-ties held there. The original use of the building was three stores on the first floor, fifteen offices on the second, and rooms for the Masonic Lodge on the third. The smaller two-story storefronts facing N. 9th St. were constructed on the north side in 1884.
