Huebener Brick no. 58 Revolutionary War Barracks
Click image for more information
 The painted brick shows a house once used as a barracks, reportedly in the Revolutionary War, but it may have been the War of 1812.

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.
