Repairs underway to stabilize Ipswich's Heard House

(Continued)

The home was sold to the Ipswich Historical Society in 1936.

Future work to the Heard House will include replacing windows, restoring the garden and increasing handicapped accessibility.

The museum also owns the 1677 Whipple House across the street. Both properties have original architectural details and furnishings that show how early Ipswich residents lived, the organization’s website says.
