Although it is a single building composed of four bays, the western two bays are slightly wider than the eastern two. The leftmost (westernmost) 2 bays are subdivided parcels owned by two different owners. The rightmost (easternmost) 2 bays are owned by a single owner.

Since mid-2016, the storefront at 947 East Main has been occupied by The Carrack gallery and artists' studio space.
