ABC Brewery Complex, Mission Hill/Jamaica Plain section of Boston
Piece description from the artist
American Brewery Company Complex in the Mission Hill/Jamaica Plain section of Boston was active from 1891 to 1918 and from 1933 to 1934. This is undoubtedly the most handsome of all the remaining breweries in Boston and once can see at a glance the pride the owners had in the place, the process and the product. The architect was Frederick Footman of Cambridge. It was built in three phases, with the oldest part on the left, the second one with the American Brewing Company name came next and then the third wing with the beautiful granite arches and terra cotta heads which was the office complex emblazoned with the initials ABC. The granite was probably either Chelmsford or the slightly grayer Quincy. Description courtesy of Michael Reiskind, Jamaica Plain Historical Society.
