The T. Goings building was constructed in 1895 and is an example of late Italianate architecture.Architecture
As a late example of Italianate the T. Goings Building lacks the elaborate window detailings of the district's other Italianate structures. Despite this, the building does have elaborate cornices. The wood cornices have brackets set atop brick piers, with finials atop. They are constructed of clapboard with the brackets and organic appliques in between the piers. The storefronts are historic and include some original doors and cast-iron pilasters.
