Statement of Significance (as of designation - November 7, 1973):
Constructed in 1841, this is one of a small number of 19th-century market complexes extant in the United States. An imposing building with Doric columns, front portico, and elaborate ironwork, it resembles a small classical temple.

Building underwent extensive rehab in the late 1990s; currently, it is in excellent condition.
