A. B. Moss Building

Joined the Register February 08, 1978
From National Register Application: The A. B. Moss building is a two-story brick commercial building which is distinguished by the two large brick "chevrons" which break the roof line and function as false fronts for twin facade units. The "chevrons" emerge from a unique banded brick ornamentation and are flanked by abbreviated piers which terminate with brick finials. The windows, which have cut stone sills and brick segmental arches with stone keystones, are united by a brick banding. The facade's first-story, with its recessed center doorway and border of black tiles with orange lozenges, was the result of a 1926 remodeling. Except for this, and a coat of green paint above, this building remains unaltered.

From National Register Application: The Grant Whitney residence, with its Mansard roof, dormers, and unbalanced mass is an unusual example of the combination of Mansard and Queen Anne forms rendered in brick.

Payette's Old Main United States Post Office

Joined the Register March 16, 1989
From National Register Application: The Payette Main Post Office is a single-story red brick building on a raised concrete basement. The building consists of the original construction and an addition to the west side (1964). The facade of the original building is flat, symmetrical, divided into five bays, and devoid of significant detailing. A centered entry bay with two window bays (all flat-arched) on either side break the otherwise plain facade. Granite steps and landing, flanked by square concrete buttresses capped with limestone, provide access to the double-door entry. The window bays immediately flanking the entry are of the same size as the entry bay. Plain concrete panels are inset beneath the sill and bas relief decorative limestone panels are inset above the sash. These two panels and one above the entry transom depict the three modes of transportation: locomotive, ship, and airplane. Narrower than the interior windows, the end windows are framed by flat cast concrete lintels and sills with a plain concrete panel beneath. A narrow belt course marking the tops of the three central bays extends along the entire front facade (including addition). The addition (west side), which is slightly recessed, is identical in use of materials and detailing to the original building. Two windows bays configured identically to the original end windows divide the plain brick wall of the addition. The entire facade is completed by a plain brick parapet, topped with cast-concrete coping. Behind the parapet is a flat roof of built-up tar composition.

Joined the Register April 7, 2010
From National Register Application: The Portia Club is located in Payette, a community of approximately 8,000 (2010) in southwestern Idaho. The clubhouse sits at 225 N. 9th Street. The single story building measures 32' x 56'. with a rear kitchen addition measuring 18' x 24.' Designed in the Spanish Colonial Revival Style, the Portia Club is unlike neighboring buildings, not only in style, but also in function and age. The building to the south is a brick church, possibly built around the same time, while the remaining structures are residential and appear to be built in or after the 1950s. There are no other structures of this style in the vicinity, which allows the Portia Club site to stand out in its setting.
