Prior to becoming a private residence, this building was used by the English High School before becoming a grammar school in 1844. Named after the first mayor of Boston, John Phillips, father of famed abolitionist Wendell Phillips; the Phillips School became one of the first integrated schools in Boston when area schools were integrated in 1855. The Phillips School moved to a new building on Phillips Street (formerly Southac Street) in 1863. Elizabeth Smith, daughter of abolitionist John J. Smith, started teaching at the Phillips School in the early 1870s, and was probably the first African American to teach in an integrated Boston public school.
