In 1850, merchant Fry Gile (1819-1898) built a block here.
When he moved to Kansas in 1854, it was purchased by retailer Nathan McCoy (1813-1886).
The McCoy Block housed studios for the Kilburn Stereoscopic View Factory (1860-68) and in 1879 for White Mountains landscape artist Edward Hill (1843-1923).
Acquired by grocers James and William Harrington in 1897, it was razed and replaced by this Second Renaissance Revival building, with a contrasting style on each level - the first to emulate the three-story brick theme set by Tilton's 1881 block.
It has been owned by attorney John B. Eames since 1984.
