The former Baker’s Clothing Store at 37 South Main Street  in Ipswich was built in 1828 and has a combination of Italianate and Greek Revival elements. The other Baker’s Store building next to the Choate Bridge burned after the Mother’s Day storm of 2006. The Joseph Manning house, just down the street was moved in the 20th Century to the other side of this building, in order to build the town’s first automobile sales and repair buildings, still standing.

This building now houses Fiske and Freeman Fine and Early Antiques. Fiske is also the editor-in-chief of the New England Antiques Journal.Baker's Clothing Store at 37 South Main Street  in Ipswich
