The central rooms of our home date from the early 1700s. The building is located in a rural area of typical New England farmhouses, many of which have been added onto creating a kaleidoscope of architectural variety. For a period of about 60 years, until 1912, members of the John Crosby family lived in our building and thus the small rise in the approaches to the house became known as Crosby Hill. Street signs do not exist unless someone puts up their own so navigation through the many stone wall-lined curved roads can be an adventure in itself.
