Monahan Building:  Architectural Details

The building's facade is in the High Victorian Italianate Style. Rock-faced cast stone pedestals form the bases of ground story piers, which mark off a standard tripartite shop front and a narrow side entry to the upstairs. The second story is lighted by three stilted segmental-arched windows, linked by faceted brick string courses and capped by scrolled sheet metal hoods. 

In the mid-1900s, the ground story front was modified but not irretrievably.



The tympanum of the central pediment is filled with brick and is corbeled out over panels bearing the date and the builder's name.
