—Downtown Lowell Historic District —Middle Street's smaller residential buildings built in the 1830s and 1840s were rapidly replaced by four and five story commercial and light-industrial buildings like this one during the 1880s and 1890s. Wholesale grocers Simpson and Rowland operated here until 1929. Other early occupants included John McAskie, maker of tents, awnings, sails, and horse covers as well as Charles Robinson, a printer, all reflecting this street's transition from residential to commercial use in the late 19th century.
