474 Congress Street
Queen Anne, 1881
Curvilinear terra-cotta panels and rondels, features of the sculptural Queen Anne style, enliven the well-ordered facade of this commercial building. The original four stories were designed by the firm of Fassett and Stevens for J.B. Brown in 1881. Brown was born in Lancaster, New Hampshire, in 1805; hence the name of the building. The upper two stories, distinguished by the slightly lighter color brick and the Colonial Revival detail, were added before 1924. Additional stories are fairly common on Congress Street buildings, the two on the Lancaster Block blend unusually well with the original structure.
