Commercial Building at 219 Adams Street, Berea

219 Adams Street, Berea
ca 1917

Directly adjacent to the Todd Building (MAB-3), this two-story structure was initially a restaurant on the first floor with a dwelling above it. On the exterior the original cast iron columns and pilasters remain, although most of the framing is obscured by pressed tin and shingles. The main entrance is recessed, and a second entrance is located on the left end. Slender, widely-spaced scroll brackets on a wide frieze of narrow wood slats support the cornice.
