Paine House at Greenwood Farm, Ispwich
The early residents of Ipswich were farmers, fishermen, shipbuilders, and traders. By the mid-1700s, stone bridges crisscrossed the Ipswich River, wharfs and storehouses lined its shore, and a salt works, tannery and ship building yard were in operation. Lace and stocking making developed as a home industry, but after the Ipswich Hosiery Mills were established in 1868, the town became the largest stocking maker in the country. Ipswich's water-powered mill industries (including tanning, shoemaking and machine knitting) prospered during the Industrial Revolution. Today, the Town of Ipswich has more First Period (1625-1725) houses still standing and occupied than any other community in the country. Coastal Byway Miles: 5.8
