Joseph Spencer Brock House // ca.1910

Located on the rocky north shore in Rockport, MA, the Joseph Spencer Brock Summer House sits perched high upon a hill with sweeping views of the Atlantic Ocean. Joseph Brock lived in Philadelphia and was the President of the Feister-Owen Press and served in official roles at many other corporations in the city. As President of the printing press company, he oversaw the production of millions of large texts including medical almanacs. The production dwindled by the time of WWI and the company subsequently closed. At least he still had his summer home in Rockport to watch over!
