Old House Research Tuesday, May 4, 2010

Posted by jcullinaneatcsl in digital collections, genealogy, history, updates.

Research on old houses was the topic of an article in the Hartford Courant, Sunday May, 2, 2010,  which included pictures and information from the Connecticut State Library.

The Erastus Watrous house  was built about 1885-1890 and is located in East Haddam. The house on the corner of South Street and Pleasant Street in Cromwell was built about 1800. It was photographed and described as part of the WPA Architectural Survey (CROM019) in the 1930s. At that time it was owned by the Waters family and had a porch that was “modern.”
