Nathaniel Scott house, Jeffreys Neck Rd., Ipswich MA

31 Jeffreys Neck Road, the Nathaniel Scott house (1838)

Thomas Treadwell owned and operated a farm here for the latter part of the 17th century, and the farm continued in the Treadwell line for nearly two hundred years.

Nathaniel Scott succeeded, and for 24 years, Mr. Scott worked on the upland and the marsh. He built this house in 1838 and ten years later, on April 3, 1848 he sold the farm to George Hodgdon, who had married Scott’s daughter, Sarah, on Sept. 1, 1831. The stewardship of the house passed through several families to the current owners, who have maintained and restored the residence with original fireplaces, ovens, beams, moldings and flooring.
