The Salem House 1
In this episode:
A neglected circa 1784 Federal rejoined the ranks of other historic homes in Salem, Massachusetts.
Our 1995 main project in the historic seaport city of Salem, Massachusetts, began with a departure from our normal Boston-area house-hunting procedure, which gives precedence to the house rather than the location. This time, we picked the city before choosing the house. As executive producer Russell Morash explained, "We were so impressed by the rich history and architectural fabric of this great old New England city, our hope was to find a fixer-upper that reflected both qualities."
