Daniel Hovey house, 11 Summer St.
Nathaniel Hovey house, 11 Summer St., Ipswich MA

The Nathaniel Hovey house at 11 Summer Street was built in 1718, the First Period of construction. The uneven layout of the front suggests that it was originally built as a half house and expanded. The ell on the left side appears to be a modification of a Beverly Jog. View MACRIS
