Ipswich, Massachusetts, was founded in 1634 and has the largest collection of First Period houses in the United States. This 90-minute walking tour of the Ipswich Architectural Preservation District visits four historic districts listed in the National Register of Historic Places. Our tour will visit the South Green, the East End, and High Street before returning through Meeting House Green, the Puritan town center. We will pass by three of the four stone arch bridges that cross the Ipswich River, including the 1764 Choate Bridge, the oldest double-arch stone bridge in America.
