- Joseph Hosmer House
- The Joseph Hosmer House is an historic First Period house at 572 Main Street in Concord, Massachusetts. The house is a 2-1/2 story timber frame structure, with a large central chimney and an eastern ell. Its construction history is unclear: the halves of the main block (on either side of the chimney) may have been built at the same time, or the eastern half may have been built at the same time the eastern ell (originally a separate structure) was added c. 1757. Stylistic evidence suggests that the oldest portion of the main block was built c. 1672, with the rest of the house dating to c. 1757, when it was assembled by Major Joseph Hosmer. (read more...)
