Original Home of Amos Lawrence, Prescott St.
Looking southeast at the original location of the house on Prescott St. Ivy St. is to the right and a faint image of the tower of the Episcopal Church of Our Saviour on the corner of Carlton and Monmouth can be glimpsed in the distance on the right. The house was built in 1851 by Amos Lawrence and, in the summer of 1899, turned ninety degrees counter clockwise and moved a small distance to its present location at 135 Ivy St. where it is now the home of the president of Boston University.
