South Boston Walking Tour
20: 1146 North Main Street



Spanish Colonial Revival Style house, presently Boston Commons Retirement Home. The Italian Renaissance section on the right was built by Tucker C. Watkins, Jr.. Dr. Rawley H. Fuller purchased this mansion for $25,000 in April, 1927, and remodeled it for use as the South Boston Hospital. It was expanded for the first time in 1928 by building a 2-story wing at the back, along Sixth Street. In 1943 it was purchased by Dr. William R. Watkins, son of the builder, and Dr. I. Keith Briggs, and the old Halcyon Hospital was then closed.
