- 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 was built in 1702, exhibiting the transitional nature of the construction techniques used, and the gambrel roof, which is not a normal First Period feature. It also features 2 dormers that were added some time later. 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. The house has never been sold, and has been handed down through the generations to its current occupants.
The house was listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1990. (read more...)
