Russell-Ekstrom House

Russell-Ekstrom House

 

While the exact date of this saltbox house is uncertain, decorated framing with early coatings of whitewash suggest construction between 1695 and 1715, making this house an important example of first period architecture in Southeastern Massachusetts. Its builder and first owner was most likely John Russell (1679-1767), grandson of John Russell (1608-1695), one of the early settlers of Dartmouth.
