“For some, the term North Shore encompasses coastal towns north of Boston, starting about Nahant and continuing around Cape Ann. For others, the definition is based more on social intangibles, less on mere geography. Beverly and Manchester would make the grade, along with inland towns like Hamilton and Wenham – favored by equestrians – and maybe Topsfield, with its pastoral scenery and gentlemen’s farms. This book sidesteps the long-running debate by including all 34 towns in Essex County. (Fox, 13)”
The VRC has cataloged images of the plans, exteriors and interiors of 6 homes featured in North Shore Boston: The Houses of Essex County.
I am including images of my favorite home in this post.
