The Lane Block, one of the first purely commercial and mercantile spaces in Hampton was built in 1900 as a result of the dislocations of several businesses by the construction of the railway overpass on Exeter Road. The Block first housed Howard Lane's general store and Ervin Dow's department store. Charles Orrin Stevens was the builder of both the Lane Block and Howard Lane's residence on Lafayette Road, now the headquarters of the Foss Manufacturing Company. Note the trolley tracks in the left foreground."
