The Nace Building
The current project of the Lisbon Landmark Foundation is the building located at 111 and 115 North Market Street in Lisbon. Built in 1850, this building is known as the Nace Building, after the Nace Pharmacy which was its most prominent occupant. It contains two commercial storefronts on the first floor and residential apartments on the second.
However, due to years of neglect, the Nace Building is in need of a full restoration in order to stabilize its structure and to make the storefronts and apartments economically relevant for Lisbon again. As recently as 2016, this building was eyed for demolition, but the location and the interconnected design of the rest of the buildings on the block means that the other buildings next to it are structurally dependent on the Nace Building.
Additionally, the location of the Nace Building at the base of Market Street and the center of Lisbon's downtown historic district puts it at a position of prominence. Stopping at the stop light at the center of town, the Nace Building is right there. With a proper restoration, the Nace Building can once again be a focal point and a point of pride for the village of Lisbon.
The Lisbon Landmark Foundation is in the process of applying for grants to help with the costs of the restoration, but we also need the support of the community. To help us, please consider donating to the Lisbon Landmark Foundation or volunteering your time or skills or even just attending one of our fun events. Help us help Lisbon!
