Description

Full exterior views of the Byron Greenough Block (also known as the Lower Hay's Drug Store building), 256-262 Middle Street, from east. [After 1985, the building's address has been known as 24 City Center.] Free Street is at left.

The building was built in 1848, and was occupied by the clothier and hat maker Byron Greenough until 1856, after which it became the "Lower Hay's" location of H.H. Hay's Drug Store (1859-1964). The "Upper Hay's" was also in a flatiron-style building, but on Congress Square. The building survived the Great Fire of 1866, and can be seen in this photo.
