- Beverly Grammar School
- The Beverly Grammar School is a rare historic First Period schoolhouse at 50 Essex Street in Beverly, Massachusetts, USA. The building, now a modest private residence, contains internal evidence that part of it was built c. 1716 for use as a schoolhouse. The diagnosis is based on indicators showing that the two bay structure that forms the house's core had no chimney, and what appear to be drawings by children on elements of an addition made later in the 18th century.
