Gloucester is home to some of New England’s best examples of colonial and nineteenth-century buildings, the ins and outs of which are examined in this extensive collection of historic homes. Stumped by the differences between Georgian and Federal ornamentation? Wondering how to identify an authentic Cape Ann cottage? Intrigued by Indian shutters, widow's walks, Tory chimneys and other such exotically named decorative motifs? Fish unravels these mysteries and misnomers. With a "Fact and Fiction" section debunking various myths and misconceptions, a comprehensive glossary of terms and even an excursion into the cutting edge field of dendrochronology, Antique Houses of Gloucester offers everything the reader needs to become an armchair expert on Gloucester's historic  residences and New England's classic building styles.
