Erected - 1887

— 112 South Palmetto Avenue —

Finished in 1887, this building was built by Colonel A.M. Thrasher who was President of the Sanford Ice and Cold Storage Company. It originally housed a saloon and a sporting goods store.

The Romanesque Revival architecture style is typical of many small brick commercial buildings of the late 1880's and is distinguished by it's rather crude and shallow decorative brickwork. The ground story facade was plain brick, now covered. Above the marquee are a brick cornice and modillion and piers at the corners. A flat roof with parapet and rectangular floor plan are also a part of this building's characteristics.

Listed in the National Register of Historic Places - 1976
