Notes
Survey number HABS CT-421
Significance: This four-and-a-half story Italianate style commercial building is significant because it is one of the few surviving commercial buildings on lower State Street, once one of the city's most prominent commercial streets. It is also only one of three commercial buildings with a brownstone facade still extant in downtown. As a result of massive urban renewal clearance along lower State Street in the 1960's, the Dawson & Douglas Building is surrounded by vacant lots.
