Inscription.

These Greek Revival style town houses were among several private residences built along Kirk Street in the 1840s and 1850s for a growing middle class being attracted to Lowell. They are named from left to right for their earliest known occupants: carpenter Asa Wetherbee; sash and door maker Hilliam Kelly; dressmaker Mrs. R. Rose; hat-sellers Misses D. & P. Maynard; and another carpenter, Enoch Ward. They were extensively reconstructed in 1993 for the Missionary Oblates of Mary Immaculate Andre Garin Retirement Residence.
