Edwin Holmes Florist – Henderson

Edwin Holmes Florist has been the sole occupant of this building since it was constructed. Located on a corner site, the one-story concrete block building has an overhanging flat roof. A large expanse of display windows faces Henderson Street and wraps around the corner to the north elevation where the entrance is located. The windows terminate with a wall of irregular-coursed Austin stone projecting above the roofline. The same stone is used for a long planter box filled with a hedge along the north elevation. Warren G. White & Associates were the architects; the builder was Tom Feik. Upon the attainment of 50 years of age, the building may be eligible for the National Register as an example of mid-20th century commercial architecture.
