The Amos Adams House was built on land belonging to the former Brackett Estate, where Albert Brackett and his sons operated the oldest and largest coal and wood yards in Newton, Mass.
When Brackett began selling off pieces of his property at the end of the 19th century, Amos Adams, a Boston Commission merchant, bought land and the house was built in 1888.
With a variety of balconies and porches, and soaring chimneys, the home also features an octagon corner tower, which, unfortunately, is obscured by trees.
At 5,460 square feet, it has seven bedrooms, four bathrooms and five working fireplaces. It was added to the National Register of Historic Places in 1986.
This was the end of my walk, so I opted to jump back in the car instead of pose again. 🙂
