A truly unusual piece of New England architectural history, this is a beautiful color drawing of a house by popular architect Royal Barry Wills, whose distinctive Cape Cod homes are prized throughout the region.

Original documents include several b/w photos of the house, an appraisal of the property done upon Mrs. Eckfeldt's death, a copy of the contract between the builder and the owner for the construction of the house, a landscaping estimate, and the original Schedule of Hardware purchased for it.
