104 N. Churton St., center, 1950s (History of the Town of Hillsborough)
This narrow, two-story, brick Colonial Revival-style commercial building was constructed between existing structures to the north and south. It has a brick veneer laid in a running bond, and a slate mansard roof with a modillion cornice. The storefront features a twelve-light-over-four-panel door with a decorative transom on the left (north) end and a forty-eight-light picture window on the right (south) end. The door and window bays are recessed slightly in paneled surrounds and separated by paneled wood pilasters supporting a wood cornice. The right end of the storefront has been modified slightly to accommodate a night deposit. There are six-over-six, wood-sash windows with flat brick arches at the second-floor level.
1966 (Hillsborough General Development Plan)
The site is vacant on the 1924 Sanborn map and the building was likely constructed in the 1930s when Hillsborough was defining itself as a Colonial town.
Perhaps, although I'd be curious to see a picture from the 1930s or 1940s to see if this is really the original form of this building - or are the roof and shutters add-ons.
In March of 2016, the Bona Fide Sandwich company, from the same group that owns LaPlace restaurant and the Wooden Nickel, opened in this location.
