Inscription.  
This quartet of buildings, which now forms the Brick Store Museum, was operated as separate businesses throughout the decades. The brick building was erected in 1825 by wealthy merchant and ship owner, William Lord. In 1936 Lord's great-granddaughter Edith Cleaves Barry, inherited the building and established the Brick Store Museum in its place. The remaining 3 buildings were purchased by Barry over time for the museum and eventually connected so they now form one cohesive block. The building to the left of the brick building was built for merchant Nathaniel Frost in 1793. The building to the immediate right to the brick building was built in 1810 for merchant Enoch Hardy. The next building was moved here in 1870. The final building was built in 1814 for Moses Savary.
