Monsoon Building

Monsoon at 113 West Market Street operates in a the Velle House, a building remarked upon in the original Historic Landmark Survey. The converted two story house and its surrounding wall are composed of vermiculated block. Built in 1908 by R.T. Seabrook, the house represents no identifiable style. A string course divides the two floors; a terra cotta frieze lies under the eaves. The second floor facade is unusual for its asymmetric windows.
