At 44 Hull Street, stands the Skinny “Spite” House across from Copp’s Hill Burying Ground. Enjoy putting together this jigsaw picture puzzle with 50 pieces.
The story goes that two brothers in 1874 fought over inherited land from their late father. When one brother was away serving in the military, the first brother built a large home, leaving the soldier only a shred of property that he thought was too small to build on. When the soldier returned, he found his inheritance depleted with only the very narrow parcel of land. To spite his brother, he built one of the skinniest houses in Boston at 44 Hull St. and blocked the sunlight and view. The house is only 10.4 feet wide, narrowing further to 9.25 feet in the rear.
How to play: Move and drag the pieces around just like a regular jigsaw puzzle. When two pieces are connected, they will click together. If you are “missing” a piece, move the other pieces aside to look behind them. Helpful guides can be found in the lower left icons. Challenge yourself to solve the puzzle in the shortest amount of time!
