Brown, Fay, and Watson Houses
Downtown Lowell Historic District
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.
Erected 2016 by City of Lowell and Lowell Historic Board.
