Abstract
During 1960 and 1961, two large-scale land clearances leveled wholesale blocks of buildings, as well of some of the loveliest architecture to grace Boston. While many of these buildings may not have had historical signifigance, standing among them was a house designed in 1793 or 1794 by Boston's famed architect, Charles Bulfinch, a house that he may have been his residence. This article takes a look at some of the brilliant architecture lost on the West End.
