Whitfield House, restored, from the northwest

PC001.02.01.USCT.0770.0050.010 (RS273)

Description

A side exterior view from the northwest of the Henry Whitfield House, now the Henry Whitfield State Museum, in Guilford, Connecticut, after the restoration directed by architect John Frederick Kelly in the 1930s. The Puritan leader Henry Whitfield built the stone house in 1639. A chimney extends along the entire side of the building, and another chimney runs up rear wall of the rear ell. A well sweep stands over a well just behind the house. A gable dormer with diamond-paned windows, matching the other windows of house, projects from the shingle roof. A stone wall surrounds the house.
