Old building facade in Connersville Indiana

608 North Central Avenue

The upper part of the facade is interesting. One just needs to ignore the bottom.....unless you are entering the building course.

Again the upper facade is nice but not the bottom. I believe the address is wrong on the door.

Blum building in Connersville Indiana

The Blum Bilding

The Blum Building built in 1902 is one of my favorite commercial buildings in Connersville. When I return the second time to take photos on September 25, 2010, I was able to capture all of the facade as well as the Chrismer building below. The first last May it was cloudy and the festival that was going on interfered.

Chrismer Building

The Crismer Building built in 1902 has some very some nice detail work. It appeares this might have housed a theatre.

Connersville Indiana Post Office

Post Office

A nice looking post office and I only took out a few minor objects. It is located a  block and a  half north of the buildings shown above on the western side Central Avenue. We will now head back toward the courthouse.

A Central Avenue Upper Facade

This building sits on the southwest corner of North Central and 7th Street,  one block south of the post office and three blocks north of the courthouse. I like the upper facade of this building and the gargoyles are interesting.
