The two-story Maeder building and the three-story Ellsworth block were constructed in 1871 as two distinct commercial buildings. Now considered one property, this block is significant as a representative example of the late 19th century commercial building type and as one of the few remaining groupings from that era to remain on capitol square. Constructed of local sandstone, the buildings have been altered but the Ellsworth block retains its distinctive Italianate window surrounds; the Maeder building's arched windows reflect the classical revival style.
