Belknap Insurance, Pomeroy Downtown Historic District ID 19
According to the Sanborn Fire Insurance Maps, by 1896 a printing business was sited here; by the early 1900s, the brick building housed Herman Scott's Holt Combine and tractor supplies business. The original brick structure was replaced in 1949 by the current concrete building and was used for many years as an insurance agency (Belknap Insurance and Oliver Insurance).
Constructed in 1949, the current one-story concrete building has a sloped roof with a single row of corbelling caps the parapet. The building has a striped metal awning, large metal sash storefront windows, recessed offset entrance, and Roman brick bulkhead.
