The Victorian brick commercial buildings on Main Street in Rockland are largely the result of fires in 1853 that leveled much of the downtown.
A year later, as the business district was being reconstructed, Rockland incorporated as a city.
At left is the Security Trust Building, a Georgian Revival bank built in 1912 from designs by R. Clipston Sturgis of Boston.
