The Boutell-Hathorn House is a historic house and farm located at 280 Woburn Street in Wilmington, Massachusetts.

Description and history[edit]

The 5.6-acre (2.3 ha) property includes a house whose oldest portion predates 1754, a mid-19th century Italianate barn, and rare surviving remnants of a slaughterhouse that was operated by N. B. Eames in the second half of the 19th century. The house is a typical Georgian 2-1/2 story timber frame house, with five bays and a large central chimney. The barn complex includes as its main section a c. 1845-85 two-story structure with Italianate details (including a period cupola), and a lower single-story structure that housed the slaughtering operation. The house is named for its first two owners.[2]

The house was listed on the National Register of Historic Places on October 27, 2004.[1]
