- Stanley Lake House
- The Stanley Lake House is a historic First Period house at 95 River Road in Topsfield, Massachusetts. It is a 2-1/2 story wood frame house that was built in stages by Mathew Stanley or his heirs between c. 1675 and 1693 and subsequently enlarged by the Lake family. It illustrates a host of building practices over the 17th and 18th centuries. The original Matthew Stanley house was located northwest of this building. Stanley's heirs having removed to the North Attleborough Falls area, sold the 100 acre farm property 1710- 1718 to Eleazer Lake. The property also includes a rare First Period barn. It was listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1990. In 2005 it was named a contributing property to the River Road-Cross Street Historic District. (read more...)
