Curran house, 79 East St. (c 1870)

79 East St.

The house at 79 East Street was constructed in the late 19th Century with the popular “High Post Cape” architectural style, which is found in several Ipswich neighborhoods.

The 1872 Ipswich map shows a house with this configuration with the name T. Curran. Two acres “with the buildings thereon” at or near this location was sold for $100 by Timothy and Julia Curran in 1859 to Israel K. Jewett, who owned adjoining property. (Book 595, page 240)
