My mom fell into instant love when she saw this beautiful Colonial in Newburyport, Mass.
According to the signage on the house, it was built around 1700 and used as a stop on the Underground Railroad. Frederick Douglass was also entertained here, it says.
Richard Plumer, who owned other houses around town, bought the home in 1830.
According to a 2015 real estate listing, it has wide pine floors, five working fireplaces and paneled walls. With 4 bedrooms, 2.5 bathrooms and more than 2,300 square feet, it last sold in 2015 for $620,000.
