Beautiful preservation and restoration of the oldest house in Norwich. First building erected in 1659 by one of the founders of Norwich, John Bradford, whose father had been governor or the Plymouth Colony and whose mother died on the Mayflower crossing. This home was upgraded extensively by General Jabez Huntington of revolutionary war fame.
Huntington corresponded with George Washington throughout the war and hosted Washington in his home on the evening of April 8, 1776 according to a letter noted by historians. Hand-built stone patio overlooking many mature plantings, pond and five outbuildings including post and beam barn and pool cabana.
