Boston, High Street, No.116
This 5-bay late Georgian house was built for William Garfit (1700-81), founder of Lincolnshire’s first private bank – in this house – in 1754.
It remained in use as Garfit’s Bank until 1890 when the business moved to the Market Place.
The house passed through several owners in the 20th century but was derelict from the mid-1980s.
