The End: Clark House Now Just Rubble

The Thomas Clark House was built by a master housewright in 1760.

It was demolished two-and-a-half centuries later by a mid-sized excavator this afternoon, Thursday, Aug. 21.

The pre-Revolutionary War era house, that stood on its Common Street homestead until 2012 before being moved to its last site on Concord Avenue, was torn down by a general contractor hired by the deed holder, the Architectural Heritage Foundation

The demolition of the center-entrance Georgian-style structure took place after a significant amount of material, from floorboards to window sills, were removed over the past week.

By this afternoon, all left of one of Belmont’s oldest and historic homes was reduced to a pile of wood, bricks and plumbing, waiting to be loaded on a flatbed truck to be taken to a landfill.
