The John Humphrey House is a historic house located at 99 Paradise Road, Swampscott, Massachusetts. It is currently a house museum owned by the Swampscott Historical Society. The house was built ca. 1635 and is Swampscott's oldest building, said to be built for John Humphrey, the first Deputy Governor of the Massachusetts Bay Colony under John Winthrop. It was originally located on what is now Elmwood Road (a plaque marks the site), but moved to its current location in 1891 as the Olmsted district was developed. This photo was taken during the winter at the original location of the house.
