- Timothy Morse House
- The Timothy Morse House is a historic First Period house at 628 Main Street in West Newbury, Massachusetts. The 2.5 story wood frame house was built in stages beginning in 1730. Even though Georgian styling and construction techniques were already taking hold at that time, this house was built in a typical First Period style. The first portion built was to the right of the (now central) chimney, and was followed at a later date by construction of the left side. In the 20th century, one addition was added to the rear of the house, and a relatively modern sun porch addition was added to the right side. The west side front room features a Federal period fireplace.The house was added to the National Register of Historic Places in 1990.
