Landmark hearing for 45 Murdock St - June 10

The Boston Landmarks Commission is meeting on Tuesday, June 10 at 5:30 in City Hall Room 900 to consider designating 45 Murdock St as a Boston Landmark. The Newton resident who owns this property has been trying since at least last September to get zoning relief to build a 3 family building at this location.

The study report by Commission staff provides great detail about this home that was built in 1802 and moved to its current location in 1873. Even though it is "one of only four known extant Federal period farmhouses built between 1786-1806 in the City of Boston", the building has been significantly altered over the years and it seems unlikely that there will be any definitive action taken to prevent its demolition.
