Washington Sq., Bartlett Farm
Looking north on Washington St. from Beacon St. Corey Hill ascends to the right. The farm house which faces Washington St. was owned from 1843 until the early 1870s by James Bartlett and was later acquired by Eben Jordan who developed a large part of Corey Hill. It is speculated that this photo was taken just prior to the 1887 widening of Beacon St.
