Custom House Block, on Long Wharf, Boston, 2006

Custom House Block (built 1848) in Boston, Massachusetts is a former warehouse located on Long Wharf, at the end of State Street. Architect Isaiah Rogers designed the four-story building, constructed of granite and brick. In its 19th-century heyday, it contributed to the life of "Boston's busiest pier, commercial port, and embarkation point for travelers." Today private owners maintain the site.[1][2]
