Featured image: Manning Street in the 1893 Birdseye map of Ipswich
Central Street was laid out in 1872, and Manning Street in 1882. Manning Street first appears in the 1884 Ipswich map, newly created, with no houses yet. The 1910 Ipswich map shows most of the houses now on the street, and Warren Street is extended from North Main to Manning Street. *Waters, Thomas Franklin: Ipswich in the Massachusetts Bay Colony, Vol. II
On High Street where Manning Street meets, two historic houses were taken down:
- The “First Period” Caleb Lord house on the corner of High and Manning Streets was removed in 1927 and was replaced by the home of Bernard Sullivan at 26 Manning.
- The “First Period” Manning house was taken down in 1925. The frame is on display at the Museum of Fine Arts in Boston.
The names of the following houses are the owners of the homes from the 1910 Ipswich map:
