James Parker House Wikipedia
The James Parker House is a historic house on Center Road in Shirley, Massachusetts. The oldest portion of this 2.5 story wood frame house was built c. 1720, and probably consisted of a typical First Period three bay structure with a large chimney. The house was enlarged to its present five bay width in 1797 by James Parker, a noted local resident. The house stands at the end of an 18th-century road, and is one of the few 18th-century buildings left in Shirley.
The house was added to the National Register of Historic Places in 1988.
