George G. Dexter, artist photographer, built this classic Queen Anne house on property formerly owned by Henry L. Ordway. The house is an exuberant example of this style and many typical Queen Anne features have been incorporated into the design. These include various shingle types, asymmetrical massing, an offset bay with a prymidal cap and finial, and a Palladian window. An unusual feature of this house is the outbuilding which was used by Dexter as a photography studio.

George Dexter did much to preserve the history of Ipswich recording and interpreting the town through photography until 1920. His photos are featured on this site.
