Older buildings were sometimes refaced, such as the Ellett's Drugstore Building of 1900, on the opposite corner of the intersection, seen on the top. It was refaced in 1934 by the Roanoke architectural firm of Eubank and Caldwell to create a portion of the William Preston Hotel. The rehabilitated building, seen on the bottom, is elegantly detailed with arched windows in a rusticated first floor and a classical cornice.
