|This linen postcard features the 1812 House in
Framingham Centre, Massachusetts. A Treadway Inn, it is " Where good food and tradition combine to please," according to the reverse.
It is unused and in mint condition. On the dividing center line on the back it reads, "Teknitone Process by E. B. Thomas, Rt. 26, Cambridge 39, Mass.," with the notation E-12999.
Although there is no information as to why this is called the "1812 House," the wise owners of the inn did include a small map to their establishment! It appears to have been located at or near the intersection Rt. 9 & Rt. 126 in Framingham Centre.
A search reveals that the house was originally built by former minuteman John FISK on the Worcester Turnpike, according to a history timeline on Framingham.com.
