  • Notes 
    • The Shoemaker-Lackner house

      A large imposing house, in late Classic Revival style, with three bays per side. Built of white brick, it had quoined corners and recessed brick alcoves in which the main floor windows were set. The house dates to 1860 and was built by David Shoemaker, the County Registrar, and served as both a bank office and residence. Later, Dr. Lackner used the house as office and residence. Building was demolished by the Economical Mutual Insurance Company, who then built their red brick Georgian style office block on the site.1a
