- William Foster House
- The William Foster House is a historic house at 96 Central Street in Andover, Massachusetts. The core of this house is a three bay two story late First Period structure built c. 1720. It was added onto about 1750, adding a two story one-room ell to the southwest corner of the house. A new chimney core was added on the north side late in the 18th century, and a second two story wing was added on the northwest. Although the house is traditionally dated to c. 1660 (with ownership of the land traced to 1635), the stylistic construction techniques indicate a later construction date. (read more...)
