The Clarence Burgin House, Quincy, MA

When I was growing up, my older relatives just called this “Grampy and Grammy’s old house.” Today, it’s regarded as one of the nicer colonial revival houses in Quincy, and it’s been placed on the National Register.

The Clarence Burgin House is a historic house at 95 President’s Lane in Quincy, Massachusetts. The 2-1/2 story wood frame house was built c. 1900 by Clarence Burgin, a bank executive and father of Quincy Mayor Thomas S. Burgin. It is one of the city’s finest examples of a gambrel-roofed Colonial Revival house. Notable features include the gambrel-roof gable dormer above the main entry, and the wraparound porch with multi-columned Greek-style projection.[2]

The house was listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1989.
