AHA Night at the RJD: Carriage Ride Down County
Beth Luey

The Rotch-Jones-Duff House is but one example of a house that tells several stories over time. The three generations of the Adams family that lived in their homes in Quincy had very different experiences, as did the six generations who lived in the Fairbanks House in Dedham. The Harrison Gray Otis House in Boston reflects the history of a whole neighborhood. These stories all come from Luey’s new book, At Home: Historic Houses of Eastern Massachusetts.
