Cedar Rapids Central Business District District Commercial Historic District

This is the old Pall Mall Store Building located at 112 2nd Street SE. The building is a contributing resource in the historic district which was posted to the National Register of Historic Places on November 2, 2015.

•This two-story brick-clad retail store building, which is located on the east side of 2nd Street SE, was constructed in late 1909. The first-floor storefront is recessed and it has undergone alterations with two modern fixed windows and a modern glass and metal door with transom overhead. A stone band course divides the first and second floors while serving as a sill for the second-floor windows. The single window opening is filled with three multi-pane sash windows with multi-pane transom windows. The window opening has a corbelled brick surround. Projecting brick pilasters flank either side of the window. The plasters have stone bases and squared capitals; they visually support a corbelled brick entablature and metal projecting cornice. The cornice and facade cladding continues several feet along the south side of the building, which faces an alley. A brick-clad skywalk spans the alley, projecting from the second floor of this building. Darker red brick faces the exposed wall along the alley. The fur business of Nate Schoen was in the building by March 1910. That business was replaced in September 1911 by the Pall Mall an exclusive women's clothing store. Later tenants included jewelry stores. (Taken from: http://www.nps.gov/nr/feature/places/pdfs/15000757.pdf )
