166 Linebrook Road,The William Lummus house (before 1832)

William Lummus had a house here in 1832, and across the street was the Abram Lummus house at the present Kozeneski farm. The present house at 166 Linebrook and the front part of the ancient Kozeneski barn seem to have been built by the Lummus family. The house is a single story low saltbox with a stone and concrete foundation. The 1910 Ipswich map shows this houseowned by A. Lummus.
