We cannot know where we are likely to be tomorrow unless we know where we were yesterday and the day before. Preserving some evidence of where we have been so that each new generation may re-examine the interpretations of the last: that was the chief purpose of the Ipswich Historical Commission and this publication. Sixteen early homes of prime quality were secured for the future by covenant, and profiled in this book. From the Old House Journal reference library.
