Filed under: Downtown — lessie @ 10:17 pm

This downtown building houses “Satya,” a men’s clothing store, situated across the street from the historic courthouse. (You can view a bit of the courthouse in the far-right window’s reflection.) I am fascinated by the building’s details: the arches over the windows, the molding, the repeating patters of circles and diamonds. The circles seems to have intricate designs that are either painted or cut out. Do you notice the small “plaque” between the windows to the right? Even zooming in, I can’t read the date, but the word above the date is “Seigel.” I wonder — is that the name of the original business?



  1. FYI the circle “cut-outs” were meant as attic area ventilators – pre Air Conditioning. They’re likely cast iron, or at least stamped tin. Unfortunate that the building isn’t painted in historically correct colors; which would have accentuated all the details.

    • I agree! I wonder what would those colors would be? Or do you mean that the painting should accentuate the details?

      Very interesting!
