Description and history

The building was built in 1884 in the Italianate style. Owner T. J. McCarthy had immigrated from Ireland to Faribault, where he attended Shattuck School. McCarthy was the part-owner of a brickyard, and he later purchased the Faribault Marble Works with partner J. H. Nightengale. McCarthy also operated a mortuary in conjunction with his marble and granite business. The building has the only polished marble facade in Faribault.

It was listed on the National Register of Historic Places on August 3, 1990.
