Inscription.  

J.E. Long and George A. Pearsall erected this Italianate building in 1874 for their hardware business. It also housed the printing office of the Brookville Jeffersonian, the Knights of Pythias, and the American Legion. The first floor was used as a hardware continuously until 1990, first under Long & Pearsall, after 1903 under Brady & Pichards, and later under Phillips, and finally as the Brookville Hardware Company. The upper story window trim is of cast iron, while the cornice is of pressed metal.
