Brief Description
A three-story brick Neoclassical building, facing west, with a metal gable roof with intersecting hips. The front facade has a rounded two-tiered gallery, with a heavy cornice supported by two-story Composite

The entrance is in this north tower and there are glazed double-leaf doors with a leaded transom crowned by an entablature supported by consoles. Above this door is a round window with terra cotta molding. The north facade is also a semi-circle highlighted with two-story Composite pilasters and a heavy cornice.
