DERBY HOUSE SALEM (rmr)
Before the Rockefellers, the Van Burens, the Kennedy’s, before the Johnson Family made their fortune off hair products and way before bill Gates and Oprah, there was Richard Derby. A merchant and fleet owner, Derby was America’s first millionaire and this was his house.
It’s the oldest brick house still standing in Salem, and one of the earliest examples of Georgian Colonial Architecture in America. The house was built in 1762.
