Inscription.  The contractor, George A. Fuller, who was also the builder of the Lincoln Memorial, the FlatIron Building, and the New York Biltmore Hotel, started construction on this building in 1922 for Dr. L.A. Brumley and Dr. Samuel Puleston. The first business, Roumillat and Anderson Drug Store, opened shortly after the building completion on May 5, 1923.

Construction is of Greendale rug-faced brick and is trimmed in artificial stone on the front and west sides. Hollow tile and stucco complete the rear and east side of the rectangular floor plan. The building has a flat roof with parapet and carved cornice brackets. There are Doric pilasters on the second and third floors.

There have been no major changes since the erection of the building, although the street level facade has been altered at various times.
