"Ca. 1883, Italianate style. Inventory: 01 1-1830-00149 Status: contributing.

Description: This is a rectangular two-story brick commercial building with a first-floor entrance to the west and a stair entrance to the east. There is a low-sloping roof and parapet. Ornamental features include decorative Italianate window hoods and sills. The eave is ornamented with brick belt courses, four recessed panels, a molded raised brick eave cornice and end piers. Second-floor, double-hung windows with a fixed upper sash appear to be non-historic windows in the original openings. Although a typical pattern has been retained, the storefront has been altered with non-historic doors, covered display and transom windows, and a non-historic awning.

History: According to the 1990 survey, this building and the adjacent building were not shown in a historic photograph of Wall Street from 1883. In 1884, this building's street address was 112 E. Wall Street. By 1888 it had been re-numbered as 114. According to the Sanborn maps, this building has housed numerous businesses including a cigar factory (1884, 1888); confectionary (1893); tailors (1899); confectionary (1906); cigar factory (1912, 1917). In the September 1925 Sanborn map, the building was occupied by a store. According to the 1990 survey, Needham Hardware occupied the building for many years and later Mayco-Ace Hardware. When the urban renewal program threatened these buildings in the early 1970s, Mayco-Ace Hardware moved to a new building at 203-205 Scott Avenue.

Integrity: The building retains sufficient architectural integrity to be listed as a contributing resource."
