The building was built in 1873. It was originally The Dorsey Livery Stable (i.e., a stable where horses and vehicles are cared for or rented out for pay) that also delivered ice and coal for 51 years. The livery stable was run by Joshua Dorsey. Edward T. Clark purchased the building and turned it into The Clark Hardware Store in 1924 where it remaied for 65 years until the business moved to Baltimore National Pike.
