Huebener Brick no. 26 Lewis House
Click image for more information
 Nothing is know of the Lewis House except that there is a watercolor painting that must have served as the model for the brick painting.

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.

 Although all we know about the location of the house is that it was on Bowdoin Street, it was probably on the section of Bowdoin Street near Meeting House Hill. A search of maps found only one Lewis House on Bowdoin Street: 1850 Eaton map of which a detail is shown at the right.
