Lecture on the Daniel Lummus House featuring Sue Nelson of Goodship Research

Antique enthusiasts, restoration experts listen up.

New Discoveries in Early Eighteenth Century Ipswich Architecture: The Sutton House and the Daniel Lummus House Join us on Wednesday evening February 20, 2008 at 7:30 PM at the Heard House for a slide presentation and lecture by architectural historian Sue Nelson and local architect Mat Cummings on two long-known Ipswich historic houses with newly discovered First Period origins. The Sutton House on Water Street is presently undergoing an intensive restoration while the Daniel Lummus House on High Street awaits a serious restoration-minder buyer. Both houses boast previously unknown First Period framing and decorative elements that push us to rethink their dates and origins. Come share in our excitement as we present these special buildings to you.

No demolition derby buffs need attend. Serious investors and folks who understand preservation work should want to be here.

The Captain Sutton House on Water Street--BTW-- has been taken down piece by piece and eerything numbered including each brick from the foundation to the walk way. Mat Cummings and his restoration crew are about to make history with the before and after on this project.
