On the Market: A Fixer-Upper from 1650
319 North Street, Hingham
Size: 2,357 square feet
This colonial known as the Thomas Lincoln House is a whopping 366 years old. It was originally constructed in 1650 near the site where the West Hingham Railroad Station would later be built. The house was then moved across a frozen swamp during one winter in the early 1700s. It was home to eight generations of Hingham’s prominent Lincoln family, who lived there over a span of 250 years.
The time-honored home—one of the oldest for sale in Massachusetts—boasts a total of five fireplaces. Original wood flooring, three staircases, and plenty of period details and molding add to the place’s historic charm. There’s ample storage space in the walk-up attic and the kitchen offers a pantry. The house is being sold as-is—it needs a history-loving owner to restore it to its original 17th-century glory.
