Richard Bellingham built his grand brick mansion on Tremont Street opposite the Burying Ground, an area then known as Cotton Hill. He lived there through his several governorships up until his death in 1672. The site is now occupied by the One Beacon Street skyscraper, home to assorted legal, financial and governmental concerns.
