Ancient Riggs House, circa 1900

The Ancient Riggs House, on Vine Street in Gloucester, was built in the 1640's. Thomas Riggs bought it in 1661. It's one of only three surviving squared-log houses in Massachusetts, and the oldest existing home on Cape Ann. In 1998, it got electricity, heat, and running water.
