A National Landmark
The building and Merrill’s apartment on the 3rd and 4th floors were designated a National Historic Landmark in 2016. The streetscape commercial tenants—two of whom have been there 50 years and knew Merrill as their landlord and friend—and the second-floor rental apartments maintain their late Victorian façade and floor plans.
The building remains much as Merrill left it and still conjures the poet’s aura.
