Historic Boston, Inc. said in an e-mail newsletter recently, On the foyer wall, the group left a vibrant mural that features many neighborhood landmarks, including the Kittredge House, Kittredge Park and the nearby Alvah Kittredge Park Rowhouses. The painter is unknown, but the mural illustrates the state of the neighborhood at the time. The Alvah Kittredge Park Row Houses, a rehabilitation project completed by HBI in 2002, is shown as a boarded up and deteriorated set of four townhouses, and the Kittredge House gleams a vibrant white with an intact colonnade.
