Baker Street
Foxborough's Baker Street Historic District
Foxborough, Massachusetts,  USA

On October 1, 2001, Baker Street was voted in as the Town of Foxborough's first Historic District. The importance of such a vote, among being the locale to more than a dozen houses dating as far back as 1835, is the preservation of six periods of authentic American Architecture, many of which were built and owned by citizens who helped shape the town of Foxborough into what it is today. This site takes a look at the architecture, history and stories behind a few of the Baker Street homes, and the historic significance of the Baker Family. These topics can be viewed by clicking on one of the topics in the upper left-hand side.
