Inscription.

This building began its life as Lowell Primary School No. 3 in 1845 and the first floor dates to that time. By the 1890s it had been acquired by William Parker, a bobbin manufacturer who was also president of the First National Bank. Although Parker didn't live here, he did undertake extensive renovations. Upper stories were added, constructed of yellow brick with metal-clad bay windows, enlarging and converting the former school into residences.
