History of

House building in early Charlestown was well ordered; an individual would select a lot and then would have three years to erect a house; that house would then have to be inspected by town officials who would approve or disapprove his efforts. If they liked what they saw, the man got fee simple title to both the house and lot. The town commissioners approved the efforts of one William Graham in 1792, and Graham’s two-story gable roof house with two rooms on each floor forms the nucleus of this much-expanded dwelling.
Mr. Graham was a cabinet maker and a decoy carver, an occupation that is recognized to the present day -- Graham decoys are considered highly collectable.
During the nineteenth century a sporting organization, the Eagle Point Gun Club, acquired Graham’s house and remodeled it for the use of its members who would stay there during the hunting season. In that use, the emphasis was on bedrooms and wash stands within the facility. One of their additions was an entire Philadelphia trolley car which was moved here, put on the back of the house and turned into a porch. Local lore has it that one of the visitors at the club was Teddy Roosevelt.
In the 1930’s the building was bought by the Burke family, a meat-packer from Philadelphia, and used for their recreational amusement. In the 1950’s the house was bought by the Mulvaney family for use as a private residence. The Mulvaneys added filled land on the bay side of the house. Local lore holds that the filled area was known as the “Mulvaney mink”. It seems that Mrs. Mulvaney wanted a mink coat; but the house needed the filled area as a drain field for their septic system. When Mr. Mulvaney died, the house was modified to provide Mrs. Mulvaney a residence and apartments to rent.
The house was purchased in May of 1998 by the current owners, who did extensive remodeling of the house, maintaining the colonial appearance on the street-side while providing a modern cathedral-ceiling glass front on the bay side of the house, which features a magnificent view of the upper bay from its windows.
