On the Market: A Grand Home on the Topsfield Common
93 Main Street, Topsfield
Size: 6,900 square feet
In 1733, a home for the clergy of the first church in Topsfield was built at 93 Main Street. A little more than 70 years later, in 1806, a cousin of Ralph Waldo Emerson built this this grand Federal-style home around the parsonage. He encapsulated four of the original rooms, expanding the home into a sprawling seven-bedroom house. Today, much of the home’s architectural details remain, including ornate carved moldings, extensive wainscoting, and symmetrical stairways. Wide windows offer scenic views in both the front and back of the house, and outside, there’s a post-and-beam barn and a milk shed.
