It is Italianate in style with decorative metal and continues the design of TAC-14. It has a leaded glass transom and display windows that have a paneled effect.

The Fire Insurance Sanborn maps indicate the building has housed general stores or dry goods stores since 1886. Former tenants include T. W. Buchanan, Coakley & Durham Dry Goods (a. 1888-early 20th c.) Caulk Furniture and Caulk Appliance. Coakley & Durham later moved across the street to TAC-41.

C05-11-06,  Commercial Building, TAC-16, 1885-1890 (Alterations 1908, 2008)

This two-story brick Italianate building was built of common bond that is six stretcher courses alternating with one header course. It repeats the design of TAC-14 and has simulated leaded glass transoms. Haskins (original owner, Creed Haskins) is written in the sidewalk in front of store.

According to the Fire Insurance Sanborn maps, the building has housed hardware since it’s beginning. The only exception is noted on the 1908 map, which indicates the building had bowling alleys. Among the hardware stores in the early-20th century was Smith and Flora Hardware.

This building continues the design, scale and motif of one of the most attractive late 19th century buildings on Main Street.
