Since Ipswich's founding in 1634, the town has been home to farmers and fishermen, sea captains and furniture makers, and mill workers and clammers.
Wealthy summer residents, artists, and photographers discovered Ipswich years later, capturing in photographs the town's rural landscapes, magnificent beaches, modest streetscapes, busy waterfront, local celebrations, and personalities.
Ipswich Revisited provides a glimpse into this town's rich past. Included here are photographs of the interiors of familiar buildings, such as the 1677 Whipple House, the 1800 Heard House, and the 1920s Ipswich Mills Hosiery Shop, and notable natives, such as the Appleton family, artists Arthur Wesley Dow and Carl Nordstrom, and Native American princess Emma Safford.
