The House at 12 Vernon Street in Brookline, Massachusetts is one of the town's most elaborate Queen Anne Victorians. The 2-1/2 story wood frame house was designed by Tristram Griffin and built in 1890 for William Boynton, a Boston flour merchant. It has classic Queen Anne elements, including a turret, multiple projecting and recessed sections. Its front porch wraps around the turret to the side, supported by paired columns above a spindled balustrade, and features a gable above the entry stairs decorated with latticework and arched spindlework framing the opening.[2]

The house was listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1985.[1]
