205 East Franklin Street

Constructed in 1981 on the site of an earlier commercial building, this two-story, brick building is three bays wide and eight bays deep with brick pilasters defining the bays, which are corbelled at the top. On the façade, the center bay is a recessed entrance with paired one-light-over-one-panel doors and fixed windows above. The outer two bays, as well as the four front (south) bays on the right (east) elevation have full-height, fixed, aluminum-framed windows with aluminum spandrels between the floors. The rear four bays on the right elevation are defined by pilasters, but are solid brick. While the parcel has always been used commercially, county tax records date the current building to 1981.

In the 2015 survey, this was deemed a Noncontributing Building.
