One of the oldest houses on Wollaston Hill, number 174 Warren Avenue also has one of the most spacious plots. You saw its adjoining basketball court this past Monday. This single residence was built in the 1870s in the Italianate style and has gone through many additions and changes over the years. It is a successful and attractive "modernization" of a 19th century residence and is the home of one of Quincy's favorite benefactors.
