The house at 59 Washington Street in Ipswich was built between 1884 and 1888 for Charles W. Bamford, who was at various times in his career, Town Clerk, Treasurer, and Justice of the Peace. Bamford owned the house as late as 1910. The elaborate cornices and multiple colors of paint define it as Italianate, with influences from the later Victorian era.
