- The Emerson House is a historic late First Period house at 5—9 Pentucket Street in Haverhill, Massachusetts. The oldest part of this 2.5 story wood frame house was built c. 1730, and contains construction features characteristic of the transition between First and Second Period methods. The first part built was the central chimney with the right front rooms, which were followed later by the left side rooms, and then a rear leanto section. The left side was probably built by Nehemiah Emerson, who bought the house in 1787. The house was originally located at the corner of Winter and Pecker Streets, and was moved to its present location in the 1850s. It still retains elements of original Federal period styling.
