    Constructed in 1914, this building was the longtime home of the Pearl Laundry Company, a steam cleaning business. In 1972, the building was converted into retail shops and restaurant spaces and became known as the Agora Mall. It continues to house restaurants, retail shops, and offices.

    Although it is somewhat altered, the building retains it distinctive shaped parapet, brick coping, and ornamental corbelling. Its original use is reflected in its large footprint and the north wall windows that provide light to the spacious interior. The building is an example of the early 20th century commercial style. Locally significant.
