—Downtown Lowell Historic District —

This Italianate style building along with one to the rear on Middle Street was home to one of Lowell's largest patent medicine companies, J.C. Ayer & Company. A major Lowell industry, patent medicine companies like Ayer served national markets and were pioneers in mass advertising. Founded in the 1840s, the company headquartered here from 1859 until 1917. Later occupants included a Studebaker Motor Car dealership, union offices, and an electrical supply company. Rehabilitation in 2004 converted the upper floors into residences.
