This is one of two false-front buildings on Railroad Street. Surviving examples of this form are relatively uncommon in Georgia.

This building, on the corner of Railroad and Broad Streets, is a fine example of formal commercial architecture common at the turn of the last century.

These utilitarian structures may have been related to the railroad.
