B: 225-227 Main Street:
The two-story edifice is distinguished by an omamental pressed brick cornice, the center plaque bearing its name, "E. L. Evans" and the date "1888".
This Victorian Italianate brick structure is defined by highly articulated brick parapets, panels, corbeled cornices, and heavy semi-circular Romanesque-like window heads. Fortunately, the original first-story storefront has been retained and the structure retains its architectural detailing and integrity.
The AAA 3 Diamond Rated resturant, Bistro 1888 is located in the right half of the Evans building.
Edward L. Evans also built a Queen Anne style home in 1892. This home will be seen further on the Walking Tour on Washington Avenue. The imposing residence features elaborately detailed porches, pressed-brick ornamentation and an exceptional interior.
