The Duren Building

This masonry vernacular commercial building, showing the influence of the Spanish Revival style on the top of its façade, was built by George F. Duren who had resided in LaGrange. He operated a grocery in this building with his brother-in-law, Arthur Feaster, who was also from LaGrange and managed a butcher shop here. It was later home to a shoe shop, a seamstress, and a real estate exchange office. This building features three separate entrances, reflecting the growth of commerce in downtown Titusville in the 1920s.
