The Burrage House, also known as The Burrage Mansion, was built in 1889 as a winter home for attorney, businessman and philanthropist Albert C. Burrage and his family. The residence remained in the Burrage family until the death of his widow in 1947. It was then sold and converted into doctors’ offices. In 1959 it was again sold and underwent renovation to be used by the Boston Evening Clinic. The Boston Back Bay Board and Care Limited Partnership purchased the property in 1990, and converted the building into a nursing home and elderly care center. Most recently, The Burrage Mansion was purchase and converted into four luxurious homes, restoring it to it’s original grandeur.
