Orange-Lincoln House

GC002.01.MA.2950.002 (RS97612)

Description

"This building stands at the corner of Salem and North Bennett Streets. It was built by Robert Orange, about 1716, and he kept it as a tavern until his death, in 1734. It, after changing hands several times, became the property of Noah Lincoln, who lived here until his death, in 1856. Since that time it has undergone many changes and alterations; but the old paneled chimneys still remain." From "Homes of Our Forefathers in Boston, Old England and Boston, New England" by Edwin Whitefield, 1889.
