    Delightful house. I could move in tomorrow. Unfortunate tiling choices in the bathrooms, but that could be reversed. Old gray tub looks original. Cupola is wonderful — I can see lots of Christmas decor possibilities. Overall a very charming, inviting house. Question: What kind of ceilings are those with the wood slats? Are they plaster? I’ve never seen those before and wonder what vintage they are — or could they be tin?

    Nice house, I would make the cupola my HQ!! Anyone else see the leaf blower?
    I grew up in a town next door to NB and it is a very nice area.

    The house of Jonathan Edwards Porter (1815-1896), a gentleman farmer and insurance agent who lived here with his 2nd wife Electa Montague. Porter grew up in Hadley and moved here in the 1860’s. Electa’s brother W.H. Montague was a boot manufacturer in town and lived next door.

    We have the same kitchen sink in a white waiting to be reinstalled after we fix the old kitchen. Beautiful home
