Historical Significance

20 Albion Place is the only Charlestown example of a Greek Revival house with a monumental columned side porch. The house has important historical associations with Elias Crafts, Jr, a prominent mid 19th century Charlestown druggist. 20 Albion Place provides an unspoiled glimpse of a detached early 1840’s Charlestown homestead, before intensive 1850’s and 1860’s urbanization.

JANUARY 1, 1840

George Johnson sold the lot at #20 Albion to Aaron Clark and Enos Varney for $466.00. Clark and Varney built the house, then in 1846 Clark sold the house to Varney for $2000.

THE CRAFTS HOUSE

Elias Crafts, a popular Charlestown figure during the mid 19th century, bought the house in 1863. He first opened his apothecary shop in the old Boylston House on “Crafts Corner” in 1828. 

Albion Place is one of the earliest streets southwest of Walker St. Today, Albion Place is a cul-de-sac with a half dozen interesting 1840’s homes

20 Albion Place has been in the same family for the last 88 years.
