Notes
Survey number HABS MD-902
Building/structure dates: 1816
Significance: 59-61 South Market Street is primarily significant as an early nineteenth century structure (c. 1820) which embodies the distinctive characteristics of Federal style and Victorian Commercial Italianate architecture in a local vernacular interpretation. The building contributes to the nineteenth century character of the South Market Streetscape as described in the National Register nomination for the Frederick Historic District. The building also reflects the development of Market Street in Frederick into a major commercial center for the region. This development is reflected in the building by the Italianate storefront which replaced a residential facade in the late nineteenth century and interior changes, primarily on the first level from residential spaces to large commercial areas. Numerous additions to the south and rear of the building further document an active commercial past as an eating house and lunch room, pawn shop, men's clothing store and variety shop. The building has made a significant contribution to the broad patterns of history in the Frederick community.
