ca. 1892

When Palmer Street was created in 1889, new lots along the street were quickly built upon including this corner building, designed in the Queen Anne style popular for Lowell commercial buildings in the 1880s and 1890s. Originally five stories in height, the top three floors were removed during the Great Depression in order to reduce property taxes. After a fire gutted the building in 1991, it was at risk for demolition until being rehabilitated in 1993.
