This elegant Cape Cod Colonial at 37 Summer Street was built in 1825.

Like many capes from the Greek Revival era it features a balanced facade, centered door with entablature and corner pilasters, dental molding and elaborate cornice returns.

This house is a “high post cape” sometimes referred to as a “kneewall cape,” a style that became popular in the 19th Century. The corner posts extend vertically, which raises the roof, increasing the usable space in the second floor rooms.
