Samuel Smith House

East Lyme, CT

My tour of historic homes in East Lyme next brought me to the Samuel Smith House.  This a great example of a 17th century Connecticut farmhouse.  The the oldest parts of this house were built around 1685 and there additions made to the main structure in 1735 and 1812.  The house and property now belong to the city of East Lyme and is being maintained by "The Friends of the Samuel Smith House".  Their goal is to restore the property as living museum of a 17th century farm.  It was identified and registered as a National Historic Landmark in 1979.
