The Carriage House Inn is one of the last three buildings on South Broadway that holds any architectural value. In the sixties this part of town was still quite residential looking, and this building in particular was part of that era. Today, most adjoining buildings are made of cement block, and the inn gives the city’s southern entrance what little architectural value there is.
The sign out front is nice, works with city regulations, and still has it’s own character. The back parking entrance is kept in good order and is pleasant to walk by on a summer day.
The front of the building is very nicely done with beautiful landscaping in the summertime. These images were shot a couple weeks ago so there are still leaves on the trees.
It would have been nice to see the Dunkin Donuts across the street pick up a few design elements from this old structure. I think the inn show that is possible to have an old commercial structure updated to work in todays environment.
