246 Clyde St., House of Francis Ouimet, 1900
Arthur Ouimet acquired this house, newly-built, in 1900 and rented it out for three years before moving in with his own family. Francis Ouimet, his son, later worked as a caddie at the Country Club, located directly across the street, and famously won the U. S. Open in 1913.

In 2020, Tom Hynes, a member of the Country Club who also lived on Clyde St., acquired the house. Hynes, with donations from fellow Country Club members, initiated a complete restoration of the house to its original condition, including period furnishings. The project was nearing completion as of this writing in June, 2022, with the final disposition of the house yet to be determined.
