October Tour Sean Meyers Photography Goins2 reduced

This commercial building built in 1873 was home to Littmann & Lichtenstein Dry Goods in its early days. The two-and-one-half story brick building has arched windows on its front and south side. It was first modernized in the 1920s with the addition of two false Spanish tile mansard roofs supported by decorative brackets. Much later its façade was covered with aluminum siding—“modernized” along with many other storefronts in downtown Salisbury.

The building’s current owners acquired it in 2008; they painstakingly restored the façade and renovated the interior. It is now the home of Pottery 101 on the ground floor and an upstairs apartment for the owners. The apartment, with its original pine floors, incorporates doors and other architectural features from the original building. It received an HSF Preservation Award and was featured on OctoberTour in 2009. It returns this year with a newly built roof terrace.
