Built in 1911 to house the Gorham-Revere Rubber Company (United States Rubber Company), the building has had a variety of commercial uses on the ground floor, and three unfinished floors that were used for rubber products storage. The U.S. Rubber Building is buff-colored brick, four stories in height, and has a frontage of 50 feet on First Avenue, the main façade. With a depth of 155 feet, the building backs to Railroad Alley that forms the southern boundary. The front façade is divided into five bays. A single commercial bay with centered doubledoor entry and flanking storefronts, occupies the ground floor. The second through fourth floors each contain five equally-spaced window bays. Flat molded terra cotta heads and flat terra cotta sills frame the openings. The windows are 18-over-1 double-hung wood sash. A pronounced molded sheet metal cornice terminates the façade just below the top of the parapet wall.
