Click image for more information
 Located on Pleasant Street on the site of the present Edward Everett School, this house was built in 1779 by Moses Everett, minister of the First Parish Church. Moses Everett was Edward Everett?s uncle. The house was demolished in 1909 when the new Edward Everett School was built, moving from its location off Sumner Street.

The Edward A. Huebener collection of over 100 bricks originally collected by Mr. Huebener exhibits brick paintings of the houses from which the bricks came. The bricks have upon them painted scenes of (mostly) old Dorchester houses and landmarks. To see a list of all the bricks, choose the term Architecture in the list at the left of the screen and choose the first subsection -- the Edward A. Huebener Brick Collection and scroll to the bottom of that page to see icons for all the bricks.
