Nickel and Paddock Property

Clinton, Iowa 52732, United States

Created By: Matt Parbs


Nickel and Paddock Property (Thomas Burnett Property and Carroll Johnson Property), 800-804 South 4th Street.The exterior walls of the building are of brick with a rich, red brick used as the predominant color, in contrast to the buff-colored brick used to define pilasters and cornice line. All of the upper-story windows are "eye-browed" with horizontal window lintels on the front façade and segmented arched windows on the other street façade. A tin cornice caps the street facades and each storefront is also identified by a tin pediment atop the cornice line. Early alterations include the addition of a second-floor bay window on the 7th Avenue South Street (north) façade. Recent alterations include the metal awning on the north façade and the storefronts.The building is an excellent example of the Italianate Style as applied to a commercial building. The upper-story is especially noteworthy. Unfortunately, the ground-floor alterations compromise the integrity of the historic architecture.
