  1. I was thrilled to find both my parents mentioned in the article “Block prints from the 1950 IHS calendar: Old Time Ipswich”
    My father Llewellyn Chadbourne and my mother Mary Jo Sullivan both contributed block prints. What a fantastic surprise to have found this information and be able to see their work from so many years ago.
    It’s also nice to see that the house we lived in (The Roberts House at 44 East Street) is mentioned in the historic homes section. My siblings and I have very happy memories of that lovely home.
    Thank you for your wonderful website!

  2. I would like to visit the Joseph Fowler house and other points of interest in that area in the near future. Is there a good place to park for a shorter walk/photography undertaking of that nature?

  3. Gordon, your mention of the book “life and lineage of Hilmer h. grace lindgren” sounds interesting. Is it available to read locally? Jim

  4. Have you come across a 1790s tavern owner in Ipswich Hamlet whose family name is Adams? I am annotating the diary of John Jay who spent the night in this tavern on 18 Nov. 1790 on his way from Boston to Exeter, N.H. Any information would be most appreciated.
