The former Jake's Store

The JP Green House is located at 133 Bourne Street in the Bourne neighborhood of Jamaica Plain/Roslindale, in Boston, Massachusetts, on a large triangular shaped lot. It was built in 1909 as a neighborhood store selling penny candy, groceries, fruits and vegetables and meat. Many older residents remember lining up outside the store after schoolto be let inside in groups of two to buy sweets, and the green wagonsof Jake's delivery boys were a familiar site.

The property was purchased by a developer in 2003, abandoned, and eventually repossessed by the mortgage holder.
