Erected - 1910

— 200-208 East First Street —

the N.P. Yowell Building was built in 1910 for a prominent Orlando merchant of the same name. It was designed by Jacksonville architect W.B. Talley, and built by George Venable. When opened, it was a dry goods store. Built at the same time was an immediate adjoining neighbor to the east, the Garner-Woodruff building. Designed and built by the same architect and contractor, this building was constructed for N.H. Garner and Frank L. Woodruff who were prominent local real estate agents and builders.

Almost identical twins, the two buildings share many features, yet each has its own identity. Both are of early 20th Century Commercial style, have a rectangular floor plan, flat roofs with parapets, and are constructed of brick. The N.P. Yowell Building has a parapet with pediment screen and corner piers and a suspended canopy over the sidewalk. The Garner-Woodruff Building differs in that the corners of the building have quoins, rather than soaring piers, and there are rusticated cornices above the windows. The street level facade of both buildings has been altered at various times.
