Nelson Block

I can’t find the date when this was built. But in 1909, a “gentleman’s clothing” store occupied it. Later, two different grocery stores occupied it. 1979: Sanel Auto Parts bought it, which forced The Gallery Restaurant out of the north end of the building. I don’t know whether this building will last another fifty years. It has the beautiful typical architecture of Vermont houses that I love, but can it survive commercialism? When clicked, this photo will open, full size, in a new window.

  1. It really looks like a very 'nice' restaurant should be in that beautiful house. Looks like the snow is beginning to melt a bit. I love that style of house too. MB

  2. I guess that building deserved a restaurant not a auto part shop!
    The style is great.

  3. The building looks strong and square. I think it will outlast the auto parts business.
