John Hayes house, 70 County Rd.The John William Alton Hayes house at 70 County Road in Ipswich is one of the newest structures in the South Village Green district, even though it was built in 1910, with modifications in 1925. The hip roof is reminiscent of Federal architecture but the generous front porch and extended eaves draw from the Bungalow and Prairie architectural styles of the early 20th Century. Hayes was involved in the hotel industry until his retirement in 1903.

The Hayes Hotel at Depot Square burned , with a loss of life. It was built as a mill for the Peatfield brothers.
