The Franklin Square House, a hotel for young working women and female students, was founded in 1902 by Reverend George Perin. The House was located at 11 East Newton Street in Boston’s South End in the former St. James Hotel. In 1914, a second building was added to the location. In 1970, the East Newton Street property was sold to the city of Boston and the House moved to a high-rise building containing 147 apartments, where it provided affordable housing, shelter for battered women, and day care. Franklin Square House eventually sold the apartment building and transitioned into the Franklin Square House Foundation, which provides grants to organizations dedicated to providing affordable housing and essential services necessary for women and families to live productive and successful lives.
