- William Livermore House
- The William Livermore House is a historic First Period house at 271 Essex Street in Beverly, Massachusetts. It is a 2.5 story five bay colonial wood frame house that was built in stages. The oldest part of the house, the right front, was built c. 1700, along with the chimney. The left side was added early in the Second Period, and a major addition was made to the rear, adding another row of rooms and a new roof. As a result the chimney, which normally protrudes through the ridge of the roof in First Period houses, instead protrudes through the front of the roof. (read more...)
