The Herdic House is among the finest examples of Italian Villa architecture in the state, and guests are welcome to tour the restaurant. Its distinctive features include ornate plaster moldings and arches, and a mahogany stairway that curves three floors to a cupola. The ornate first floor mouldings and the acanthus-leafed fluted columns on the porches are original to the building, and the intriguing three-story chandelier has captivated many visitors. The bar, in the rear of the building, was created from the witness stand of the demolished county courthouse, and the fan was taken from the same building.
