This complex of eight buildings
was located on the south side of the 100 block of Main Street.
Five of the eight stores were vacant at the time Gaylord State Bank
purchased and razed them to make room for their new bank building.
Gaylord State Bank. The
left side of the building is an A-frame featuring cut fieldstone.
On the right is a 3-story office building with a clock tower, flower
boxes, balconies, and stucco finish.
A typical 1950s back alley.
That same alley now has a
flower garden, paved parking lot, and underground utilities. This
improvement project was made possible by the cooperation of all the
merchants within that block.
