- The Gott House is a historic late First Period house on Gott Avenue at Gott Lane in Rockport, Massachusetts. The plank-framed gambrel-roofed cottage is estimated to have been built in the first quarter of the 18th century, based on the transitional nature of the construction techniques used, and the gambrel roof, which is not a normal First Period feature. The first part built was the right side and the central chimney; this was extended with the rooms left of the chimney later in the Second Period. The interior retains significant Second Period trim and decoration. (read more...)
