This building was located on the site of the present day Ross Block on Main Street in Kennebunk.

It was built about 1881 and burned down in 1895. It housed the Eastern Star Newspaper, Dr. Ross' medical office, Dr. H.E. Bourne's medical office, a dental practice, the Odd Fellows Hall, a stationery and jewelry repair shop and, as a sign on the front indicates, a "telephone office."
