Excerpt from The Development of the New England Dwelling House, Vol. 14

The Department of Historical Research that appeals most keenly to popular taste is the determination of the age of ancient houses. But to reach definite results the student must pursue three lines of investigation: 1: The location, position, shape, size, arrangement and construction of the house must be carefully considered. As far as they were able, the early settlers grouped their houses in a center around a town square or common, and later, when the demands of the people required, and safety from Indian depredations was assured, they built in more remote parts of the town. The first houses were near the salt water where the white men could find refuge. Not before the King Philip's War (1675-1676) did settlers venture far away from the sea. The early houses generally fronted the south, without regard to their relations to adjacent roads, and consequently are often found standing end or back to the nearest street. Volumes have been written concerning the construction of houses. In the first place it is necessary to decide whether the entire structure is of one date or an aggregation of additions and alterations of different ages. Then the size of brick in chimneys is often of significance, because the Colonists manufactured brick of different dimensions than were made in European yards, and were more crude and imperfect in finish.
