At 9 East Street is the Foster Russell House, built in 1856 and enlarged in 1872. The gable is oriented to the street as was common in the Greek Revival period. Deep rakes, wide cornice returns and fluted corner boards are also typical of the period. Foster Russell and Martha Hodgkins  were married in Ipswich on January 29, 1829.
