 Although the location of the house picture on brick no. 84 is unknown, the house type was fairly common in Dorchester. Edmund Baker’s house, located on Richmond Street was similar with a 5-bay façade and 3-bay side. The Baker House and the Church were replaced in the 20th century by a commercial building, now housing a CVS store.
