Baxter’s was established by T.J. Baxter in 1892 and moved to the present building location in 1918 by his son. Its exceptional patterned brickwork, executed in red and buff-colored pressed brick, distinguishes the façade of the Baxter’s building. The stately (4,500 square-foot) building has two-story ceilings and a huge skylight in the main gallery showroom. Its sun-bleached antique glass showcases line both sides of the gallery floor. The building is greatly enhanced by the Baxter’s Clock, an ornate Seth Thomas street clock erected in front of the building in 1920.
