Question: A recent trip to NEHGS turned up the Boston, Suffolk Co. deed for my ancestor on Lynn Street in 1814. I can not seem to locate this street, and it would be nice to know if it still exists.
Answer: The current Lynn Street in Boston was named in 1884, and had been called Thacher Avenue before. The historic Lynn Street of 1814 was laid out in Boston in the year 1708. At that time it was located from the North Battery northwesterly to the ferryway by Hudson's point. Together with portion of of Ann street named Commercial Street February 17, 1834.
