James P. Flint House

  • James P. Flint House (Keith Morgan)

A small rectangular structure only one-and-a-half stories high, this house features an Ionic porch and the gable end facing the street, forming a geometric composition that suggests influences of the English Regency on the Greek Revival style. Jesse Haycock may have been the designer, but little is known about him; he died in Sacramento, California, in 1850. The first long-standing owner, James P. Flint, acquired the property with his wife, Ann, in 1848. A Boston merchant, Flint joined other Boston businessmen in erecting homes in the suburbs, his cottage occupying an elevated site with a view toward the city.
