Abraham Browne House
- View Full Item
Abraham Browne House, 562 Main Street, built in 1663. Restored by the SPNEA in 1924. 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. Browne House is a modest "one-over-one" dwelling with eighteenth- and nineteenth-century additions. Prominent features include a steeply pitched roof, diamond-patterned casement windows, and early door and window placements and styles. W.C. Woodman, photographer.
