Description

Beautiful Historic House in Litchfield.The house was built by Moses Seymour Jr. for his son, Moses Seymour III, in 1814-1817. It is distinguished by the use of tongue-and-groove boards to finish the front, a sophisticated nod to Federalist architecture. This feature is unusual in Litchfield.The trefoil window in the facade is a celebrated feature too. Conveniently located within walking distance of the center of town, many well-known Litchfield residents such as Harriet Beecher Stowe and other visitors had tea in the elegant front parlour. Original features of the house have been lovingly preservedthe door latches, the wide-board hardwood floors, the handcrafted lock and key in the living room, etc. The beams inside the plaster walls are nearly a foot wide. The Franklin stove (invented by Benjamin Franklin) in the front parlor holds heat well after the wood fire is extinguishedan early example of conserving fuel.The Seymour familys descendents lived in the house continously from the time of its construction until 1985. In addition to its historic integrity and charm this house boasts all modern amenities including a new generator. It is truly the best of both worlds.Extensive family papers and records of the house are archived in the Litchfield Historical Society . There is, for example, a receipt for the 1925 purchase of the lilac tree still blooming on the north side of the house.
