Here's What it Costs for a Family of Four to Live in Ipswich, MA

    What New England Town Do You Think is Most Picturesque?

    Ipswich didn't make Huffington Post's list of New England's picturesque towns but I'm happy to say two North Shore towns did! Did you know Edgartown Light (house) on Martha's Vineyard was constructed in 1875 at Crane's Beach in Ipswich, MA and was moved by barge in 1939 to Edgartown? So a piece of Ipswich did make the list!
