(4) The Wesch-Oak Building

Built: 1893

Address: 717 North River Street

Stone pilasters flank the central opening which is a design technique to establish two separate store fronts and to emphasize the major entrance to the upstairs. Symmetrical in design, the building displays a Romanesque arched window on the second floor and a denticulated cornice. On the rear facade you will notice ornate brackets that once supported two balconies. The local Save Our Sandstone Commission is active in the preservation of the Wesch-Oak Building.
