8811 Santa Monica Boulevard

The structure embodies distinctive characteristics of the Italianate Revival style. These include an emphasis on the vertical as illustrated in the large, circular arched windows of both façades as well as the tall arched opening at the canted corner and the quoining where the entrance is located. The structure, due to its location, contributes to the significance of the Old Sherman Thematic District. Historically, it is connected to that district as a 1920s structure built during a period when the town of Sherman expanded into a large, economically diverse commercial center.
