Statement of Significance (as of designation - November 11, 1971):
Constructed in 1837, this brick and limestone Greek Revival-style building is among the most sophisticated examples of small-scale commercial architecture in the country. Gideon Shryock (1802-1880) adapted classical idioms to a narrow downtown lot; his design is most notable in its front facade, which consists of a monumental distyle-in-antis doorway.

Condition:
Both the interior and exterior of the NHL are structurally sound, though infrastructure upgrades will be necessary throughout the next decade to ensure efficiency of electrical and HVAC functions.

There are no changes to the landmark.
