18 CONGRESS
On this site were leased lots provided
by the North Church Parish dating from
1709. One such parcel was the home of
Hunking Wentworth, Chairman of the
Committee of Public Safety and zealous
patriot on behalf of the American
Revolution. The site was also the
continuous location of commercial
establishments, including the Colonial
Theatre, until a fire in 1960 caused the
removal of most of the buildings.
