Additional comments.
1. 154-156 West Main Street - National Register Nomination Form (1983)
This two-story brick building was constructed in 1882 and was an early home of the Spartanburg Herald Journal. The first floor storefronts of the building have been altered. Above each storefront is a metal cornice with dentils. This upper portion of the facade is intact and contains arched windows separated by brick piers. Corbelled brickwork and recessed panels are also present. The roofline features a blind arcade and corbelled brick cornice. On the Spring Street second-story elevation the one-over-one windows have shutters.
