The Consulate Building
255 Main St.
Why was it important for you to participate in the façade program?
I have a vested interest in seeing this town be a successful town. It was looking pretty tired and it needed rejuvenation so when I heard of the façade program I decided to take advantage of it and be able to utilize some funds to help upgrade this building. This building was in dire need of repair so the façade program was definitely helpful with that. We put in new windows, new doors, redid all the trim on the outside and tried to make it look period correct for the age period that the building was built in (1846). We also added decorative molding on the outside, redid the roof and painted the whole building.
What impact has your new façade made to your business?
I get a lot of comments on it; a lot of people tell me how much they like it.
