ca. 1855

Originally home to Wyman's Church that occupied a tall upper story over ground floor shops, the building was remodeled and converted to commercial use in 1879. Built by William Wyman, a local eccentric prone to ranting in church and at political events, he built several other properties downtown and was also Lowell's second postmaster. In 1963, the second-ever CVS store opened here, the first being on nearby Central Street that same year. Rehabilitation in 1985 returned the building to its 1915 appearance.
