South Boston Walking Tour

E: The Gillespie Clinic,
formerly the Glasscock Hardware building
425-427 Main Street

On the right in the same block, is 425-427 Main Street (the old Glascock Hardware Building, 427 Main Street,) (425 Main Street, now Commonwealth Home Health) with its iron columns and Victorian Italianate styling.

This is a block of two stores, one with its original storefront, containing large upper-story fenestration with heavy lintels and an elaborate bracketed cast-iron cornice extending across the top of the building. A cast-iron segmental pediment with consoles is centrally positioned about the cornice of the building.

The next stop - The old Masonic Temple building
