The structure was constructed as a commercial investment by the builder, developer and merchant Richard F. Carman in 1851-53. It was the headquarters of the Hanover Bank. In 1870, the New York Cotton Exchange was founded here, the second such exchange in the world and the first commodity market in the United States. After 1914, it was India House, a private club.
It was declared a National Historic Landmark in 1977. It currently houses restaurants. It was also used in the 2001 film Kate and Leopold as Leopold's family home.
