The Boardman House (1692)
17 Howard Street, Saugus, MA 01906
The Boardman House was built in 1692 for William Boardman and his family. Boardman was a joiner, a woodworker who built furniture and did cabinetry and interior finish work. The house has a typical hall and parlor plan, with a central chimney stack and staircase. The lean-to at the back was added to the house sometime before 1696, when Boardman died at the age of thirty-eight. Descendants of the Boardman family owned the house and lived in it until 1911.
