Berry Gordy's old house in Boston-Edison—the legendary "Motown Mansion"— is now home to his former neighbor, Cynthia Reaves. She grew up watching Gordy's star-studded parties, and remembers seeing the Jackson 5 "trying to play golf in his backyard." Gordy made the house famous, but he's a small part of its long history. Says Reaves: "If anyone loves history or art or architecture, the homes that are on Boston Boulevard are the homes to have and to live in. Each one has a story." [Local 4]
