Description and history

The Emerson–Poole House stands in a residential area northeast of Wakefield's downtown area, on the north side of Salem Street between Main and Pleasant Streets. It is a ​2 12-story wood-frame structure, five bays wide, with a side gable roof, clapboard siding, and two asymmetrically placed chimneys. The main facade is also slightly asymmetrical. A mid-19th-century porch with modest vernacular Italianate features extends across the full width of the front, and additions project to the side and rear of the original structure.[2]

The house was built about 1795 by Elias Emerson, who sold it to Timothy Poole, a house painter. It was the birthplace in 1808 and home of locally prominent painter Franklin Poole, who captured many historically significant scenes of Wakefield in the mid-19th century. The house is also important for the murals of Rufus Porter, an important itinerant muralist, painted on its walls, and as a well-preserved local example of Federal period architecture.[2]
