Description

The Southwick column papers came to light in the spring of 1950. Protected by only a piece of rough brown paper, they had lain undisturbed in one of the columns of the portico of the Congressional Church in Southwick, Mass., since the building was completed in 1824. The papers shed new light on Captain Isaac Damon, a relatively obscure architect and bridgebuilder.
