    About Us

    Cooper-Frost-Austin House is clearly documented as the oldest dwelling standing in the city of Cambridge. The same family owned it for more than 250 years. Built by Samuel Cooper in 1681, the house is one of the earliest examples of an integral lean-to “half house” consisting of a “low room,” “little room,” “kitchin,” “Chamber,” “kitchin Chamber,” “Garret,” and “Cellar.” Other original features include a pilaster chimney and a façade gable.
