William Brown, printer and clerk at the State House in Boston, lived in the Gothic Revival cottage erected in 1847 at 19 Broad Street in Salem. It was built on land acquired from the Pickering family and the Pickering House, a seventeenth-century house that was itself later altered in the Gothic style, is nearby. The Brown Cottage was owned by the Bartlett family from 1865 to 1919.
At 13 Chestnut Street (corner of Cambridge Street) in Salem is a Greek Revival house built around 1832 by carpenter William Lummus for Miss Elizabeth King. From 1884 to 1923, it was the home of Dr. Thomas Kittredge, surgeon general of the Commonwealth. The bay window above the front door is a later addition.
