As our company has grown, so has our need for work space.

Slowly but surely, restoration plans have been laid out and work has been made toward restoring the beauty and functionality of this historic building.

1136 Main St. Stevens Point, WI
Year Built: 1900
Architectural Style: Romanesque Revival
This two story commercial building has a facade composed of cut stone. The storefront level of the facade has been painted black, the upper level beige. The transom area has been covered with wood, however a metal beam and patera are partially visible.
The second story consists of two pair of windows which are set beneath semicircular arches. The tympana and spandrel areas feature square blocks of stone which are distinguished from the remaining rectangular blocks on the facade.
The pressed metal cornice which completes the composition follows a classical theme with swags decorating the frieze which rests beneath a band of dentils. This commercial structure dates from around 1900.
The black and white snapshot was provided by the Wisconsin Historical Society & was taken in July of 1973. The full color picture was taken recently in May of 2019.
