Samuel Goodhue’s pier
In the early 20th Century, Samuel Goodhue operated a canoe rental business on the Ipswich River at the end of Peatfield St in the area known as Pole Alley.
Goodhue’s pier is long gone, but the the white house above the pier building still stands, and the location is a public boat launch.
