postcard of the Draper House

The Draper House at the corner of Reedsdale Road and Canton Avenue (120 Reedsdale Road) was purchased by in 1877 by Sarah Draper, the widow of Dr. Abijah Weld Draper of W. Roxbury. When the family sold the property in 1938, daughter Aimee Frances Draper retained the two adjacent lots on Reedsdale Road; building a home for herself at 104 Reedsdale Road. The estate originally included what is now Lantern Lane.
