Franklin Place historical marker

"In The Autocrat of the Breakfast Table (1857), Dr. Oliver Wendell Holmes mourns the change in Franklin Place, with a fine residential block developed by Charles Bulfinch in 1793. The fashionable area - houses, gardens and all - was torn down in 1857-58, and renamed Franklin Street when commercial buildings were built here. Only the width and crescent shape of the street remain from the original design."
