62 Middle Street , Newburyport MA - Historic Property

“In 1851 this house was owned by John E. Piper. Piper was a hatter and his shop was located at 28 State Street. Between 1872 and 1884, the house was owned by Thonias C. Huse and his heirs. Huse was also a hatter.” – Massachusetts Historical Commission

According to the Massachusetts Historic Commission, 62 Middle Street was listed in the National Register of Historic Places in 1984.

The MHC’s survey speaks to the home’s architectural significance, noting a renovation to the front entrance of the Georgian-style during the mid-nineteenth century to the Greek Revival we see today.

The survey also gives nod to interior elements including raised field paneling and gunstock posts – of course.

But the most fascinating spot of tea we discovered was the home’s historical significance in terms of how the homeowners of the 18th century potential impacted the development of the Newburyport community!

“Maps of Newburyport in 1851, and 1872 indicate that this building was oriented on the site with the facade facing the point at which Fair and Middle Street meet.”

Experts believe this might indicate the home was built before Middle Street was laid out as it is today, making 62 Middle Street a first period house.

Today the home balances this beautiful history with modern amenities gracefully.

New features include a Chef’s Kitchen with custom cabinets, soap stone countertops, and stainless steel appliances.

The kitchen opens into a large family room, perfect for entertaining with its French doors that lead out to the patio and sporting area.

Other impressive features in this home include cathedral ceilings, seven fireplaces and long-leaf, Heart Pine floors.

Named for being the heartwood of large, first-generation pine trees that were 300-500 years old and standing before the first settlers landed in the 1600s, the dark colored “heart” is known to be decay resistant and more stable than other woods.

This made heart pine a great choice when used for the tall masts of English sailing ships, and why the wood is also referred to as King’s Pine.

Today original Heart Pine is no longer available because pine trees aren’t grown to such maturity, making the pine floors inside 62 Middle Street very rare and valuable.
