1874 - 1927

Before suburban shopping malls began springing up in the mid-20th century, downtown anchor department stores like the Bon Marche sold almost every product a family needed. This store consisted of four interconnected buildings built in various Victorian styles fronting on Merrimack and Kirk streets. In 1950, Jack Kerouac held a book signing here launching his first novel, The Town and the City. A Jordan Marsh department store operated here until 1991 and the complex was rehabilitated in 1995.
