description

Summary

Significance: The McNamara House and Store is an early and largely intact example of the multistory commercial/residential building type in Worcester. It is notable for its Stick Style architecture. Developed as part of the expanding Irish community around Vernon Hill and this section of Millbury Street, and owned and operated as a saloon between 1886 and 1900 by individuals with Irish surnames, the building has an important association with the history of Irish immigration in Worcester in the latter part of the 19th century, when the Irish still constituted the largest immigrant group in the city.
