Kimball-Parker House

GC002.01.MA.3850.015 (RS98098)

Description

"This peculiar old house stands on Unity Street; was built by Ebenezer Kimball about 1710, or perhaps somewhat earlier, and he sold it to Caleb Parker in 1724, and it has continued in the possession of his descendants until the present time. The bricks are said to have been imported from England, and are larger than those in general use. It has wide bands similar to those in the Tremere House." From "Homes of Our Forefathers in Boston, Old England and Boston, New England" by Edwin Whitefield, 1889.
