First Period houses were constructed during the first century of English colonization. Although surviving examples are quite rare, there are believed to be 59 houses in Ipswich, Massachusetts with some First Period elements. The 1712 John Lummus house on High St. was restored in 1964 by Phillip Ross, who apparently never installed railings on its front stairway. The present owner of the house contacted me about making and installing authentic First Period posts and railings similar to the Parson Barnard house in Andover.
