Description:
  • Photos show views of the house located at 34 Salem Street on the southeast corner of the intersection with Pleasant Street. Built around 1819-1820, the large Federal style house was build by contractor Elias Boardman, who had also done construction work on Beacon Hill in Boston. The house was considered so extravagant at the time that it was known locally as "Boardman's Folly". A rear ell and garage were added later. The home is now broken into apartments.
