Click image for more information
 Nothing much is known about this house. The list of Huebener bricks says the house was on Washington Street, and the photograph reproduced below has the caption ?near Codman Street.? A copy of this photograph published in the program for Dorchester Day in 1913 has a caption that says the house was at Lower Mills.



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.
