Edward Everett Hale House

About This Project

Edward Everett Hale House, 1841, Roxbury, MA


The Edward Everett Hale House was constructed in 1841 and designed by the architect Benjamin Kent. The Greek Revival Mansion was named after its most famous occupant Edward Everett Hale, an American author and Unitarian minister, who owned the home from 1869 until his death in 1909. Today, it is listed on the National Register of Historic Places.


In the early 1990s, the Boston Redevelopment Authority contracted with HBI in the amount of $185,000 to conduct partial exterior restoration of this seriously dilapidated structure, as a more efficient way of fulfilling the obligations of a 1970’s HUD urban renewal close-out agreement with the house’s private owner which required preservation of several key Highland Park Houses.
