Mid 18th century Massachusetts house in Washington, DC

In 1754 King Hooper built the Lindens as a summer home in Danvers Ma. Nearly 200 years later it was moved to the Kalorama Section of Washington, DC, home to diplomats and wealthy locals living in chateaux and English Middle Ages revivals.  The year before it was moved, Arthur Haskel photographed it for the Historic American Buildings Survey.  Much more recently Peter Waddell  painted it on a former call box around the corner from the house and today I photographed before the storms.  Walter Macomber of Colonial Williamsburg supervised the house’s dismantling, in 1935 and reassembly.
