Cotting-Smith Assembly House

Located in Salem, Massachusetts and owned by the Peabody Essex Museum the Cotting-Smith Assembly House (138 Federal Street), 1782, was built as a Federalist Clubhouse in which balls, concerts, lectures, and other events might be held. George Washington attended a dance here. The original architect is unknown, but the house was later remodeled by Samuel McIntire for use as a private residence. The house is in the Federal style and is listed in the National Register of Historic Places. The building can be rented for special events.
