Man Builds A 6-Foot Wide House As A Revenge On His Greedy Brother

This is without a doubt one of the most interesting buildings in Boston, not only because of its size and an unusual architecture, but also because of the story behind it. This is Spite House, the undisputed narrowest home in Beantown measuring only 6 feet across.

The story goes that three brothers were given a patch of land to build homes for themselves. However, while one of them was off at war, the remaining two occupied most of the property leaving him with a tiny patch. In spite of them, he decided to build a house right there. Decades later, tourists and passers-by are strangely attracted to it and curiously enough, it’s available for rent.
