Statement of significance: 
This is the only existing building in Pendleton built in the Chicago School style, as characterized by the three part facade with base, mid-section, and top. Windows are all in groups of three separated by pilasters which continue to the ground. Of special note is the portal carving, the main element is a clock face with the hands permanently fixed at eleven o'clock. This is a permanent reminder of the former occupancy by the Elks Lodge who make particular note of the eleventh hour.
