The Cutler and Porter Block is a historic commercial block at 109 Lyman Street in Springfield, Massachusetts. The four story brick building was constructed in 1894 for the firm of Cutler and Porter Inc, a wholesaler of shoes, boots, and rubber goods. It was made to be visually sympathetic to the adjacent Produce Exchange Building. In the 1920s the firm W.F. Young, Inc. occupied half of the building, eventually taking it over entirely. Young remodeled the premises to accommodate its business, the production of horse liniments, and made changes to the facade, integrating its logo into the brickwork.[2]

The building was listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1983.[1]
