105 - 107 S. State St.

Historically the J.J. Drake & Company (105) and Hazzard & Hott Dry Goods (107).  Originally constructed in the Italianate style.  The storefront has been completely obscured.  The second story windows have double rowlock corbelled round arches which shoulder and meet the adjacent arches.  The parapet features brick corbelled brackets which are aligned between the windows below; bricks also create dentils.  Drake had a bakery in his section of the building, then J.W. Rice Clothing and Dry Goods took over 103-105.  Various grocery and hardware stores occupied the building over the years.  The Monticello (Loudenback) Bowling Alley was in 105 in the 1940's.
