Lydon's Funeral Chapel, pictured here and in the background of yesterday's post, was built in the 18th century and given to a young lady as a wedding present from her father. This handsome building has also served as a birthing house, nursing home, and it's present function as a funeral home. Quincy residents who were born here have returned many years later to pay their respects.
The stone grotto-like structure functions as a waterfall in warmer weather. On occasion the grounds of the funeral home become enshrouded in bubbles from a local soap prankster.
