Inscription.  

Although we associate the name Charles Bulfinch with much of the architecture on Beacon Hill, he did not design most of the houses here. Styles similar to his were copied by master builders and independent housewrights in their own vernacular, but distinguished, fashions. Jeremiah Gardner was one such housewright who lived on the Hill and built No. 66.

Housewright-contractors like Gardner might build rows of four or five almost identical houses, one of which would be their fee.

All residences in this neighborhood are private. BH12
