US Census Block # 34-309

One-story commercial brick building

Architecture
The building lacks fenestration other than storefront windows angled into recessed entry on the south side and raised warehouse doors on the west side. Architectural detailing is limited to the use of minor horizontal corbel work. The building was built for use as a Michigan Electric Railroad Interurban depot, and was later used as Consumers Power offices. The brick sheathing over the building front and the angled, recessed entry has seriously altered its historical integrity.
