- Davis-Freeman House
- The Davis-Freeman House is a historic house at 302 Essex Avenue in Gloucester, Massachusetts. In 1709 Jacob Davis acquired a grant of land at the head of the Little River, and by 1712 he had built this house and a mill on it. The house is a 2.5 story plank construction set on slightly more than 1.5 acres (0.61 ha). It has had a few 20th century additions, and underwent a restoration in the 1930s that was relatively sensitive to historical accuracy for the time. (read more...)
