9/23/2015: Big Red (399 Waltham) has found a buyer

The Samuel Wheat House — aka Big Red — is under agreement. You guys remember this place: built in 1734 and only 6 owners in past 281 years. Looks like owner #7 will be closing just before Halloween.

Dr. Wheat used to see patients in his dining room. And by patients I mean guys who got banged up during the French & Indian War. Dr. Wheat died in 1770, which means he didn’t even live to see the American Revolution. Guy was probably like don’t even talk to me about the Continental Congress. Just help me get blood off the dining room floor.
