1918 3rd Avenue North in March 2012

1918 3rd Avenue North is two-story commercial building constructed in 1888 on the north side of 3rd Avenue North in the City Center neighborhood. It currently serves as the Haskins Law Office.

The building was developed by William Rushton Sr and features elaborate molding on the second story. It has served as a grocery, a mortuary, and a shoe store. In 1959, building owner Jobe-Rose jewelers hired architect Lawrence Whitten to remodel it. He designed a modern facade for the upper portion of the building that covered the molding. Some decades later, the facade was removed and the original molding restored.
