One of the oldest and largest commercial buildings in Bridgewater, this two-story brick building has a tall bracketed false front, segmental-arched second-floor windows, and an oriel window on the second-story side elevation. Consisting of three shops on the first floor and apartments above, the building is one of a cluster of similar brick commercial buildings at the corners of Main and College streets, the town's historic commercial core.
