Colonial Dorchester recreation begun by American College of the Building Arts students

SUMMERVILLE — Students from the American College of the Building Arts have constructed the first interactive “ghost” brick foundation, to suggest the house that stood on one home lot in Colonial Dorchester State Historic Site.
