The new season begins in Boston’s oldest neighborhood: Charlestown. Kevin and Norm highlight Charlestown’s historical importance, from colonial times through World War II. The new project is part of a cluster of 1850s-era Greek Revival houses tucked into the backside of Bunker Hill.

This Old House Hour: Season 35th Season!

Thursdays at 8pm on WGBX 44

A major upgrade begins in Charlestown: adding a Greek Revival-style front door. On the second floor, new wood wainscoting is installed; a feature wall insert for the master shower is created with marble basket weave tile; and small section of copper roof is added to the roof. In the second half: installing a natural gas line for a new grill; and hanging a heavy mirror on a masonry chimney. Also: what grows best in the shade.
