O'Reilly Spite House

O'Reilly Spite House


Cambridge, Massachusetts (MA), US
In 1908, Francis O'Reilly owned an investment parcel of land in West Cambridge, Massachusetts and approached his abutting land neighbor to sell the land for a gain. After the neighbor refused to buy the land, O'Reilly built a 308-square-foot (28.6 m2) building, measuring 37 feet (11 m) long and only 8 feet (2.4 m) wide to spite the neighbor. The O'Reilly Spite House is still standing[25]and is occupied by an interior decorating firm as of mid-2009.
