Boston in Suffolk County, Massachusetts — The American Northeast (New England)
This graceful home was built around 1712 and managed to survive when all its neighbors--including the house that Ben Franklin owned next door--were torn down. This was the home of one of Boston's "substantial mechanicks," Ebenezer Clough, the master mason who helped build Christ Church ("Old North"). Once, before the present-day promenade and newer buildings were here,many small brick houses like this one made up the prosperous neighborhood.
