Claflin-Gerrish-Richards House

Discover how families lived during the 17th century — in the Claflin-Gerrish-Richards House, listed on the National Register of Historic Places and one of the earliest dwellings on the North Shore. Of particular interest are the original Ogee braces, an architectural detail typically found in 16th-century English dwellings.
