8 Brown Street, the Timothy Carey house

8 Brown Street, Timothy Carey house (1890)

The Ipswich Historical Commission database lists the house at 8 Brown Street as the Timothy Carey house, built circa 1890.

The house is typical of the Liberty/Brown/Mineral/Washington Street vernacular Victorian gable end homes built at the end of the 19th Century, often from plans available through architectural magazines. The style in Ipswich was generally L-shaped with a porch and brackets under the gable, and mass-produced prefabricated trim.
