The Boston House was owned and built by William T. Jones in the early 1900s. It is located in Downtown Fort Pierce and was added to the U.S. National Register of Historic Places due to its Neo-classical and Georgian architectures. It is also part of the local history in the city as Jones was an engineer for Henry Flagler’s Florida East Coast Railway.
