Lots of architecturally significant buildings were constructed in Quincy in the 19th and 20th centuries. Many have been maintained over the years and have survived the wrecking ball and the ravages of time. One building will be featured here every Thursday. Why Thursday you ask? Thursday was chosen as a tribute to the public television program called This Old House because that was the night the program originally aired 29 years ago on public television in the Boston area.
Today's post is located at 86 Beach Street in the Wollaston section. The single residence is a fine example of an early Colonial Revival Style with a wrap around porch of the past Queen Anne period. I bet you can see Wollaston Beach from the widow's walk! The house was built around 1900 and was owned by the Chapman family until after 1935. It is a striking Colonial Revival style home and looks perfect with its coat of yellow paint.
