House Omitted

To the Editor,

I enjoyed reading Dan Murphy’s article, published April 22, 2021, on Joseph Bagley’s wonderful book “Boston’s Oldest Buildings and Where to Find Them.” Murphy’s piece featured the Glapion-Middleton House at 5 Pinckney Street, built between 1786 and 1787. It appears, however, that in his list of Boston’s oldest standing buildings Bagley may have omitted the house at 1 Pinckney, constructed circa 1789.
