Inscription.  In 1852, John B. Gould purchased a "tin shop” in this original structure built in 1840. His son, Jason "Jay” Gould, born in Roxbury in 1836, became a partner with his father in the shop at age 16. The younger Gould was sent to New York City to purchase manufactured hardware items introducing Roxbury to factory-made pots and pans.
