Taylor House, a gracious Victorian home in Boston’s Jamaica Plain section, was built in 1853 for George W. Taylor, an international merchant head-quartered in Boston. It is situated within the Monument Square Historic District, and lies in an area known as "Pondside", which contains some of Jamaica Plain’s finest suburban architecture. The structure is predominantly Italianate in style. A distinctive octagonal cupola sits atop the main house. The house is surrounded by Victorian-inspired gardens and lies less than one block from a beautiful pond and a town centre with excellent dining and shopping. The Gardens at Taylor House are modern interpretations of Victorian planting styles. An abundance of flowering plant species is set within distinct garden areas in ways that allude to bygone days.

presentation of select historic lodging accommodations,
including bed & breakfasts, inns, hotels and lodges worldwide.

significant to world history with respect to their architecture,
engineering, archeology or culture, as well as their location,
design, materials, workmanship, feeling or association.

connect with the past, while enjoying restful lodging,
excellent cuisine, gracious hospitality and more.
Sadly, countless historically significant structures
have been (and continue to be) lost forever.
Many of those that endure, do so largely because of the
vision, passion and dedication of devoted and enterprising
proprietors, companies and others, who (usually after great effort
and expense) offer them as living, interactive lodging facilities
reflecting the rich historical fabric within which they are woven.
