"In the autumn of 1875, Nathaniel Everett Cutler and his brother, David C. Cutler, leased a portion of the lower floor of the Wakefield Building for their 'modern' grocery and grain business. Cutler Brothers opened for business in April, 1876, and subsequently earned a reputation for being 'the finest and best equipped modern grocery store in this part of Massachusetts.' Among the products sold at Cutler Brothers were hay, grain, seeds, paint, oils, crockery, hardware and fertilizer. By 1891, business was so extensive that additional space was required. Nathaniel Cutler, the sole owner of the business at the time, purchased a lot of land on the southeast corner of Main and Water Streets. He erected a three story building with a floor area of 28,000 sq. ft., into which he moved his grocery and grain business. Cutler Brothers Grain Mill & Elevator was destroyed by fire after being struck by lightning on July 6, 1911." -- Text from calendar by Jayne M. D'Onofrio.
