 The Clap-Kendall House was located on Washington Street between Lyndhurst Street and Kendall 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.

 Built in either 1796 by Oliver Warren or in 1798 by Joseph Clap, great-grandfather of Henry Clap Kendall, the house owned by J. Clap appears on Washington Street in the 1858 Walling Map of Norfolk County. The bottom of the map detail shows Codman Square with the Church at the northeast corner of the intersection. The Clap Kendall House seems to be the fourth building north of the Church on Washington Street.
