From Wikipedia:

John Perkins House (Wenham, Massachusetts)
The John Perkins House was a historic First Period house at 75 Arbor Street in Wenham, Massachusetts. The 2.5 story wood frame house was built in stages, beginning c. 1710 with the right side and the chimney. This was followed by the left side and the rear leanto, which were probably added in the following decades. It is possible that the house was built with a single story porch, which would have been a quite rare feature.The house was listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1990. The home was demolished on May 13, 2011. As of 2013, there has been new development on the property. (read more...)
