Drawing by Benjamin Archer on the proportions of a four and six-panel door, 1826. Carpentry books back then listed formulas for proportion of doors, moldings and windows, rather than measurements.

Once believed to be the oldest wood frame house in America, recent tests have indicated it is more likely that the Balch House was built around 1679 by the son and grandson of John Balch. John Balch was one of the founders of Salem.
