The Clough-Vernon House

Description

"The old house stands on Vernon Place, off Charter Street, and was probably built by William Clough, as he was living here in 1698. It is a fine specimen of the houses built in early times. It will be noticed that the second story at the end overhangs the lower part considerably, which fact alone would attest its great age. The middle door and the stack of chimneys are also worthy of notice." From "Homes of Our Forefathers in Boston, Old England and Boston, New England" by Edwin Whitefield, 1889.
