Actually two buildings, the Ayer Lofts consists of the Barker Building and the J.C. Ayer Company Building. The Barker Building was built between 1890-95 by Horace Barker to house a variety of commercial and light industrial uses. It is typical of buildings that were built along Middle Street in the late 1880s/early 1890s when the street’s smaller buildings were rapidly replaced by four and five story structures built to serve mostly wholesale service and light-industrial trade. Through the years the Barker Building housed many businesses including printers, a brass foundry, and a harness manufacturer.
