    Hayden Building, historic gem of the Combat Zone, to be restored

    Grime obscuring its salmon-colored sandstone, the Hayden Building at 681-683 Washington St. remained a fivestoried thing of beauty. At once slender and substantial, its design suggested Henry Hobson Richardson - the best-known American architect of his day and the most celebrated in Boston’s history. But Zaitzevsky knew Richardson’s works had been catalogued, and this wasn’t one of them.
