Patrick Riley House on Washington Street, Ipswich MA

16 Washington Street, the Patrick Riley house (c 1865)

Patrick Riley House, 16 Washington St., built ca. 1865 for Patrick and Ellen Riley. They are also responsible for construction of the house at 12 Washington which stood on the same lot as late as 1910. Patrick Riley is listed in town directories as a farmer. By 1924 this house was occupied by Isaac W. Mitchell, a carpenter.

JP LaVallee adds, “My Mom’s maternal uncle, Jacques Trudel, lived at 16 Washington Street with his spouse, Lucia, and they raised two children there. Jacques was the organist and choir director at Saint Stanislaus Church for many years, and  taught many people in town piano lessons for many years.”
