ca. 1844

These three Greek Revival style town houses were among several private residences built along Kirk Street in the 1840s and 1850s for a growing middle class that was being attracted to Lowell. Named from right to left for their earliest known occupants, Alpheus Brown was a lawyer and Abijah Watson sold hardware, clothing, and later was a bookseller while little is known about the middle unit's owner Fay. Extremely dilapidated by the 1980s, they were restored in 1989 for offices.
