Peirce-Nichols House
The Peirce-Nichols House is a historic home located in Salem, Massachusetts. The home is owned by the Peabody Essex Museum. Samuel McIntire designed the Peirce-Nichols House (80 Federal Street), circa 1782, in a transitional late- Georgian/early Federal style for Jerathmiel Peirce, co-owner of the merchant ship Friendship . McIntire remodeled portions of the house in the Federal style twenty years later. To the rear of the house are stables and, behind them, visible through an opening in the stable wall, a terraced lawn extends back to a small arbor. Originally the property swept down to the North River, where Captain Peirce could dock his ship at the foot of his own property. The house is a National Historic Landmark.
