So where were they hiding before this house was built?

Today's real estate fluff piece in the paper highlights 33 Mead Avenue (coincidentally, the same short street that's discussed in the last post). It's a beautiful old home, well deserving of its historical landmark plaque, but, according to GT's reporter, and its tax card, it was built in 1835.

So this struck me as pretty ignorant:  

There’s a story that soldiers fighting for the cause of independence were quartered in the home, up in the same attic.
All those details make for a compelling story.

Compelling if true, but unlikely.
