This 1790s Georgian residence was built for Deacon John Larkin, a patriot best remembered for his role in Paul Revere's legendary midnight ride. It was Larkin's horse that carried Revere out to Lexington and Concord to warn the Committee of Safety of the approaching British troops.

Larkin's original house stood in nearby City Square. Along with the rest of Charlestown,it was destroyed during the Battle of Bunker Hill in 1775. This clapboard-sided house with a low third floor and quoin-embelished corners is a rare survivor from Charlestown's post-Revolutionary era of construction.
