Ipswich, Massachusetts was settled in 1633 in an area the Native Americans called “Agawam” and has more “First Period” houses (1625-1725) than any other community in America.

  1. Can anyone give me any information about the connection between woodlots and the collection of wood ash? I had heard that the Parsonage at 17 N Main, of which we are owners collected wood ash on the property and we have found some puzzling evidence. Wondered if anyone has any interest in this?
