Inscription.  This single-story commercial building includes a partial basement, wide-open interior spaces, and a tall, carefully detailed, Main Street store front of exposed, buff-colored, pressed brick. The other walls are composed of common red brick. A metal surface covers the flat, wood-framed roof. For a half century after 1918, this was H. H. Freeman's Pinal Lumber and Hardware Company. In 1941, the owners added a wood-and-metal sidewalk canopy, suspended with metal ties from the parapet wall.
