The Charles G. Loring House

"The Loring House might well be the best of all the surviving Shingle Style houses of the 1880's"

—Vincent Scully

[The house] enlivens its wonderful siting, rearing back and up as it does, like a force of earth beside the sea and then, as if astonished, it comments upon that relationship with eloquently varied window shapes.

William Emerson [architect of the General Charles G. Loring House] was in some ways the freest, the most imaginative, and probably the most charming of all the Shingle Style architects...

...much more supple, varied, and light of touch than the great Henry Hobson Richardson himself.

—Vincent Scully
