From the “It’s a Small (and Uncanny) World” file: I was in Boston for New Year’s, and we drove past this building in Somerville. I wondered what it was, and thanks to a postcard that came today from Stuff You Missed in History Class listener Shari (or perhaps Shani; the signature could go either way), now I know. It’s the Enoch Robinson Round House, built in 1856. The shape of the building is patterned after the Desert de Retz in Chambourcy, France, which was constructed in the late 1700s.
