One-Part Commercial Block
The One part commercial block is a simple, one story box with a decorated facade, typical of urban places from the mid 19th to the mid 20th century. Most of these structures were used as retail stores. Street frontages are narrow and the facades consist usually only of plate glass windows and entrances surmounted by cornices or parapets. Small, wooden versions of this style have false-fronts, a couple of examples still survive in Eau Claire.
