Local Landmarks

I have always been intrigued by the historic 
architecture here in New England 
and this wonderful gem is right here 
in neighboring Marshfield. 

The Colonel Isaac Winslow House 1699
6 x 6 

It is described on the website as:
"a four square house, built around a gigantic chimney, 
with fine high pitched roof 
and an enclosed Portico in front, 
with wide windows and unusual depth, 
making an entrance hall. 
The house is framed with “gun stock” timbers
 conforming to the “first period Colonial” 
except that it has no overhang to the second story."
