The McSweeney Building fronting the south side of Main Street in Moncton, New Brunswick, is a three-storey, stone and brick Italianate commercial structure that was constructed in 1901. When this commercial property was designed by J. C. Dumaresq and built by local contractor T. D. LeBlanc, it was the first department store in Moncton. It also contained the first electric passenger elevator in the area, attracting crowds from as far away as Prince Edward Island and Nova Scotia.
