The Ripley Home

History aficionados will fall in love with the circa 1883 Ripley home. The tour inside provides an esoteric insight into the newly renovated structure teeming with original hardwood floors and features 12’ ceilings and 10’ doors. 

We walk through this area almost every day and I never really thought that the brick splendor exudes all the elegance you could hope for including a new kitchen with Viking appliances, large sweeping staircase, crystal chandeliers, four marble fire places, sauna, and the original intricate custom brass hardware.

Nestled on a charming Montague town, it is a reminiscent of the days long past perhaps offering also a glimpse of the life of the original owner, pioneer businessman and pharmacist Lafayette G.Ripley. 

(A virtual tour of this home and a brief biography of Ripley are available here.)


  1. What a fabulous quality home, obviously built well to last. Looking at the photos, it has certainly been well maintained and I love the high ceilings. I wonder what the final sale price will be.

  2. wow stunning home, you don't see homes like this too often anymore. Very well maintained, love the exterior.

  3. this is definitely fascinating - love the pics :) I love looking at and touring homes like this. In our area, we have the Winchester Mystery House (maybe it is time for another visit, with Halloween around)

    1. OMG. I would love to see that place! I watched so many documentaries about that.

  4. Super informative and I love those photos! Also youre writing style is so nice!!!

  5. Beautiful pictures. My fave is the fairy one. Well maintained home.

  6. I love your pictures a lot. And my favourite one is "section through dummy and road red". I wish someday, I'll see ripley home or any similar kind of home.

  7. Lovely house. Love the photos. I love antiques, mostly when they are maintained like this one.

    That sign about the City Drug Store cracked me up. A drug store that sells cigars, ice cream sodas and minerals! Wow. Anyway, the Ripley house is amazing. The chandeliers are beautiful!
