Notes
Survey number HABS ME-150
Building/structure dates: 1809 initial construction
Building/structure dates: 1840 subsequent work
Significance: This building is a typical commercial brick row block of the early 19th century (c. 1809), originally brick-fronted, and showing a characteristic form of stylistic "up-dating" in its Greek Revival-era granite facing. Built as a warehouse, it has become apartments-over-shop. Its third-story public hall (now altered) may represent an intermediate functional change of the 19th century.
