Historic Neighborhood Photo: Tiny House on Snow Hill Street

You may recognize this tiny house located on the corner of Snow Hill Street in the North End. The residence dates all the way back to 1920, however this photo was taken in July of 1967, back when the house was being used as a sculptor’s studio.

At just 420-square-feet, this landmark is known as one of the tiniest houses in Boston, yet it still somehow contains a full kitchen, living room, bedroom, bathroom, and even a loft!

  1. The sculptor was a stone carver. Before he rented the space, Mr. Chase used the space as his painting studio.

  2. Remember it well , as I lived a few doors up. In the 40,s Corrine is right, a Mr Chase lived there at the time and I believe he was an artist. As kids we were always facinated by the large attic window.

  3. Yes it’s a great little home, my aunts bought the home in 1973 and lived their till they passed away in 2013, since then I have completely renovated the interior and hope one day to retire there, till then I rent it out.
