Pierce Hichborn House

Located on 423 Hanover Street in Boston's North End, the Pierce Hichborn House is a hidden gem often unnoticed by tourists. But for those who appreciate historic architecture and local tales, this house is a must-visit destination.


History

The Pierce Hichborn House was built in 1711, making it one of the oldest surviving buildings in Boston. It was originally owned by Pierce Hichborn, a wealthy merchant and ship owner. Over the years, the house has survived multiple fires and changes in ownership but still retains its original character and charm.

Activities

Without a doubt, the main highlight of the Pierce Hichborn House is its architecture. With its charming colonial-style facade and intricate details, it's like taking a step back in time. Walking through the rooms, you'll feel like you're living in the 18th century. The house also features a beautiful garden, perfect for a peaceful stroll or some Instagram-worthy photos.

But what truly sets this house apart is its rich history and stories. From tales of secret tunnels used during Prohibition to rumors of ghosts haunting the attic, there's no shortage of intriguing anecdotes to keep you entertained.

Nearby Attractions

While the Pierce Hichborn House is a destination in itself, there are plenty of other attractions nearby that make for a perfect day out. You can stroll through the charming streets of Boston's North End, known for its Italian influence and delicious food. Or you can visit the Old North Church, famous for the "one if by land, two if by sea" signal during the American Revolution.
