When I was there in July, I saw two old brick buildings on Main Street near the Plaza that were in the process of being restored. One was the Brunswig, but I can't recall the name of the other...

Well, I was just in the old Plaza area today, specifically to look at those two buildings you mentioned. They look nearly restored. Yes, one is the Brunswig, and the other one next to it is curiously called the Garnier Block.

I took some pictures:
