Address: 15 West High Street
Architectural Style: Vernacular
Year Built: post-1908
Architect/Builder: Unknown
Original Owner: Unknown

The building was constructed in the early-1900s, reusing the sandstone block foundations of earlier, smaller brick and frame commercial locations on this site.  Original interior and exterior architectural elements make this building a strong historic attribute to the Downtown Mount Vernon Historic District.  This three-story yellow brick building is representative of the larger structures that began to dominate the area surrounding the Public Square at the turn of the 20th century.  The Adams-Zolman Building's most notable architectural feature is the highly decorated cornice, divided into two distinct hoizontal segments and clearly defined by geometrical shapes.  These detailings project slightly from the face of the building.  This cornice lends a distinct appearance to the edifice that is unlike any of the other buildings located in downtown Mount Vernon.
