In the heart of Salem’s McIntire Historic District, this was our family's home for 27 years.  The structure is a first period Colonial built in the 1700’s and moved to the site in 1836. We did a renovation/sympathetic restoration, keeping as much of the original structure, plaster and trim as possible. Ironically, the older portions of the house were in the best structural condition, while the later 1860’s additions were in poor shape and required rebuilding from the inside out.

 The home was featured in many This Old House books, magazine articles and television spots.
