Lots of towns say they’re shining a spotlight on their history. This month, Ipswich is doing it literally. The celebration called Ipswich Is First . . . Period, running through Nov. 25, will show nearly all of the town’s 59 First Period homes illuminated each night. Organizers hope visitors and locals alike will drive around to see the bounty of history here, much as families used to drive around to look at Christmas light displays.
