- View Full Item
Abraham Browne House, 562 Main Street. Built in 1690. After restoration in 1924 by the Society for the Preservation of New England Antiquities, now known as Historic New England. This shows the unique triple diamond windows that this building has for its time: diamond-patterned casement windows. The Browne House became one of the first fully-documented restorations of a First Period building in the United States. During the restoration, an impressive amount of seventeenth-century finish detail was uncovered.
