Fabulous on Federal Street

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.
