- Abraham Adams House
- The Abraham Adams House is a historic First Period house at 8 Pearson Drive in Newbury, Massachusetts. The oldest part of the house, its front section, was built between 1705 and 1707 by Abraham Adams, a farmer and sea captain who was married to the granddaughter of jurist Samuel Sewall. That portion consisted of a two story wood frame with two rooms on each floor, on either side of a central chimney. Later additions include a two story ell projecting from the rear of the house, to which is connected a single story modern addition, giving the whole house an "I" shape. (read more...)
