As described at Old House Web
The vertical extension of the front of a building beyond the roofline createsthe false front style. Almost always used for commercial purposes, falsefront buildings gave an air of dignity to a quickly growing town by providingvisual continuity along the street.

False front architecture is typically associated with the pioneer West.
