Chaplin Cottage // 1855

One of a handful of Gothic style cottages remaining in the appropriately named Cottage Farm neighborhood of Brookline, the Chaplin Cottage is the only extant constructed of brick. This cottage, along with many others were constructed in the 1850s as detached homes on the Lawrence Estate and rented to Amos A. Lawrence’s friends. This home was rented out by William Chaplin and his family for many years before it was sold off like many others by the heirs of the Lawrence estate. The house features a steep roof, pointed arch gables, verandah with gothic posts, and multiple chimneys with chimney pots.
