The Joseph Fuller House is a historic late First Period house located at 161 Essex Street in Middleton, Massachusetts.

Description and history[edit]

The oldest part of the house was built sometime before 1720 by Joseph Fuller, and consisted of two stories, each containing two rooms, with a central chimney. Later in the 18th century a leanto section was added, giving the house a saltbox appearance. This addition included a "Beverly jog", an extension of the leanto to the left side providing shelter for an entrance there. In about 1800, a gabled front entry was added to the symmetrical front facade. Most of the interior decoration also dates to about 1800.[2]

The house was listed on the National Register of Historic Places on March 9, 1990.[1]
