  • Robert Bacon House (Keith Morgan)

The Robert Bacon House suggests the extent of the influence of Boston architects in the suburbs during the early decades of the nineteenth century. Rare surviving plans for the Bacon House identify it as the work of John Kutts, who practiced in the city and is known to have designed at least one house on Beacon Hill and probably many more. The Bacon House has the massing, center plan, and some of the fine detailing of Federal residences, but its Doric entrance porch demonstrates Kutts's interest in the new Greek Revival.
