It remains one of the most ornate buildings in the downtown area reflecting the prosperity of Hearne in the late nineteenth century. The upper portion of the front facade has Classical details in pressed metal on a wood frame. Above the main floor is a mezzanine with an open well, which allowed light to enter through a skylight and second floor windows. Mrs. Josie Smith Welch deeded the property to the City of Hearne in 1971 for use as a public library. Smith-Welch Memorial Library, named in honor of the Smith and Welch families, opened in 1974. In 2008, First Victoria Bank, aka Prosperity Bank, agreed to sell the City of Hearne the vacant Jim Florence Community Building, as the library had outgrown the historic building. The 5000 square foot facility provides ample room for all the services the library encompasses.
