1845

—Downtown Lowell Historic District —

Greek Revival in style with a mansard roof added after an 1865 fire, this building housed a typical main street hardware store for over 100 years and originally contained a public meeting hall upstairs. One of many locations for lectures and recitals in early Lowell, Edgar Allan Poe spoke here in 1848. In an early preservation victory, demolition for a proposed parking lot was blocked in 1976 and the building was rehabilitated in 1980 for affordable elderly housing.
