Notes
Survey number HABS MA-718
Unprocessed field note material exists for this structure (FN-293).
Significance: This residence consists of two houses - a Cape Cod "double house" of the 18th century on the west, and a Cape Cod "house and a half" of the 19th century on the east, and are joined together to make one house. These have the early Cape Cod characteristics both on the exteriors and for the most part, on the interiors. The location is within the area of the proposed Cape Cod National Seashore. / This house is made up of the Jeremiah Higgins Cape Cod "house-and-a-half," built on the site ca. 1830, to the west, and the Joshua Rich Cape Cod "double house," built to the northeast ca. 1780 and moved to the west side of the Higgins House. The houses were joined in the early twentieth century.
