Fourth House in Salem

The Fourth House in Salem after restoration. The oldest surviving building in Salem, the Fourth House was built in 1768 and has what is known as a Flurkuchenhaus (hall-kitchen house) plan, with three rooms around a central chimney. In 1936 the Society of the Colonial Dames purchased the house and partially restored it. Old Salem restored the house to its 1768 appearance.
