- The Thomas Lambert House is a historic colonial First Period house at 142 Main Street in Rowley, Massachusetts, United States. Like many period houses it was built in stages; the first stage of this house's construction dates to c. 1699. It is unclear whether it began as a single cell (a two story structure with one room on each floor to one side of what is now a central chimney), or a double cell (matching sections either side of the chimney), because framing elements to determine this have been boxed in. It is likely that a leanto was added sometime in the 18th century, although this has to some extent been obscured by later work which raised the rear of the house to a full two stories and replaced the roof. The building's entrance porch was added in the 19th century. (read more...)
