Jeremiah Lee Mansion

Jeremiah Lee Mansion

The Jeremiah Lee Mansion is one example of the varied mansion houses built in the mid-to-late 1700s.  Houses like this, much larger than the Choates', distinguished the wealthiest colonists from their neighbors and echoed the homes of other powerful people in the colonies and England.
