1966 (Hillsborough General Development Plan)

February 1983 (SHPO via Tom Campanella)

Torn down in 1988? Or renovated / added onto?

This one-story, hip-roofed office building is seven bays wide and double-pile with a projecting, front- gabled wing on the left (south) end of the fac╠žade. The building has a brick veneer on most of the facades, six- over-six wood-sash windows, generally paired, and a square cupola with louvered vents on each elevation perched on the ridgeline. The six-panel door has a classical surround with fluted pilasters and is sheltered by a two-bay-wide, hip-roofed porch supported by slender Tuscan columns. The projecting, front-gabled wing has fiber-cement siding, six-over-six wood windows in groups of three, and an octagonal vent in the gable. There is a hip-roofed projecting wing at the right rear (northwest) with a flat-roofed section to the south of the wing. A low brick wall at the northeast corner of the building creates a small courtyard. Tax records indicate that a gas station stood on the site prior to 1986, but the Orange Federal Savings and Loan Association acquired the property in 1988 and constructed the building at that time. It is currently Orange County offices.
