The Framed Houses of Massachusetts Bay, 1625 -1725

The Framed Houses of Massachusetts Bay is a classic book and a must for anyone interested in Colonial architecture. Several Ipswich houses are featured.

In a rich blend of architectural and social history, Abbott Lowell Cummings reconstructs some of our nation’s first houses. This is a splendid story of innovations, of restless, migratory people and their architectural and social responses to their environment. It is the first chapter in the long saga of America’s preoccupation with technology, showing how it affected the early American home.
