Ever been down Carruth street?
I know…some of the most beautiful houses in Dorchester. This is what it looked like in 1889….when the Carruth family owned pretty much the entire patch of land from Carruth street down to Adams street. When you’re the director of the Old Colony Railroad, Dorchester Gaslight Company, Co-Founder and Director of Cedar Grove Cemetery and a director of the Mattapan Bank…you can be as gangster as you wanna be. That is 24 and 30 Beaumont Street….at the time this street served as their driveway.
30 Beaumont Street is actually a bed and breakfast these days…. Here is their site.
