History of the Amesbury Neighborhood Association:

The Amesbury neighborhood was originally a farm owned by William Amesbury. In 1965, a tornado that stretched for miles hit Shorewood and Deephaven, severely damaging the family farm and homestead.  Deciding to part with the farm after the storm, the family sold the property to the developer Jim McNulty.  In the 1970s, McNulty developed the planned residential development. Honoring the Amesbury Farm while remaining in step with the natural forested setting, McNulty incorporated the mid-century modern architecture by architect Willis Lampert Walling, ensuring nature views and privacy for each of the neighbors utilizing rolling berms and the winding roads around the three large ponds in the neighborhood.

The homes in Amesbury tend to be smaller, ranging from around 1,500 to 4,500 square feet.
