James Ingraham arrived in Hallowell in 1813 and purchased the lot now occupied by the Brick Store and City Hall. He built a corner store locals referred to as a rum shop. The store was connected to his dwelling house by a large shed that served as a store house and stable. Disaster struck in February, 1826 when one Hallowell's largest fires destroyed all his buildings. A brick store was built between 1826 and 1828 and over the years housed stores, the American Advocate newspaper, a reading room, the Hallowell Fire Department, the Knights of Pythias, and antique shops. It is currently occupied by a real estate firm.
