The Iron Block was a group of four buildings built on Public Square
in 1850. The block was designed by architect Otis Wheelock
, and built by Norris Woodruff. The buildings were host to a multitude of business over the years, most notably the J.R Miller men's clothing store.
The buildings eventually deteriorated after years of neglect and poor management. After some public outcry, three of the Iron Block's four buildings were demolished in 2005. The fourth building, being well maintained over the years, remains standing today, home to a local pizzeria.
