You can own a historic Andover building for a cool $3.4 million.
The Lawrence Savings Bank building at 342 North Main Street in Shawsheen Village hit the market in late May. It’s the first time the building has been up for sale in more than 25 years. The building has 13,500 square feet of interior space and “is an ideal location for owner occupancy and a corporate headquarters,” according to the listing sheet.
Ground was broken in 1919 and the building opened in 1920 as a post office, with offices and a street-level grocery store as part of William Wood’s push to make Shawsheen Village the “home of the upper management and staff of the A.W.Co.,” according to the Andover Historical Society.
Frye Village Realty Trust, the current owner, bought 342 North Main Street from the Lawrence Savings Bank for $950,000 in 1995 after a flurry of bank mergers in the 1990s.
