Description:
  • Photos show views of the commercial building located at 414-416 Main Street on the east side of the street. The building runs along much of Lincoln Street. Built around 1870, the brick structure is Second Empire/Mansard Style, and the upper story windows have elaborate granite moldings in the Eastlake Style. The original high Mansard roof was removed in the mid 20th century. The block was the initial home of several important local businesses, including the Wakefield Item, and the Harvard Knitting Mills, before they moved elsewhere.
