From Wikipedia:

Samuel Frye House

Samuel Frye (or Frie) House is a historic First Period house at 920 Turnpike Street in North Andover, Massachusetts. Tradition places its construction between 1711, when a previous house on the site burned down, and 1719, when Frye gave the property, with house, to his son. The house was in the Frye family until 1880. It is a 2.5 story wood frame house, one room deep and five bays wide, with a rear leanto section that was added in the 19th century. The house is notable for its retention of a tradition two room form despite the removal of its central chimney during Federal period renovations.

The property was listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1990.
