The Skinny House

44 Hull Street

Boston, MA 02113

The Skinny House is a four story house that's 10 feet wide x 30 feet deep. It's also known as the "spite house" based on the rumor that it was the result of 2 brothers in a feud around the time of the Civil War. When one of the brothers returned home from the war, he discovered that the other brother had build a large house on the property they inherited from their deceased father and felt the land was distributed unfairly. To be spiteful, he built this Skinny House to block the brother's views and the sunlight.
