Noyes-Hale house
Noyes-Hale house
Parker Street. The old house is still in a good state of preservation. The heavy oak frame shows no sign of decay, and the repairs that have been made from time to time have kept the exterior walls in good order and condition. The chimney was formerly about four yards square at the base, and extended nearly to the back wall of the house. About 1880 it became necessary to somewhat reduce its size. In doing this, the existence of a secret closet was discovered. There was no entrance to it from either the first or second story, and the only way it could have been reached was from the cellar. It was evidently constructed for the purpose of providing a safe hiding place for gold and silver and valuable household effects.

Built by the Rev. James Noyes, cousin of The Rev. Thomas Parker, first pastor at Newbury. The two lived here together for about 10 years. During early 20th century renovations a secret closet was uncovered, only accessible from the cellar.

kitchen/den area with fireplace and oven on the right side. New owner sitting at the table (they are from England). My wife standing straight ahead. One thing I first noticed about the old house is the large support ceiling beams and then very wide flooring boards. The husband (owner) told me that in the day the house was built that 20” wide boards were what was allowed and not any wider but this house had some up to 23” wide!
