The Globe corrects a small error about Dorchester

As I observed on January 27, that day’s Boston Globe erred in calling the Paul Revere House the oldest building in Boston. Today they corrected their error:

Because of a reporting error, a Jan. 27 story on the Paul Revere House incorrectly identified the North End building as the oldest house in Boston. Dating to about 1661, the Blake House in Dorchester is the oldest, according to the Dorchester Historical Society

As far as slights to Dorchester go, this is of course small potatoes, but it’s still nice to see the Globe’s recognition of something positive about the part of Boston where they are located. We’ll take our victories where we can get them, no matter how minor.
