Long time followers of this blog might recall the picture of this granite house, posted back in March 2014.

At the time I wrote what little I was able to find about the history behind this structure.  You can read about it here.  Recently I happened to drive by this house again, and I couldn't believe what I saw.  

Old Mystic, CT  2016

Someone is restoring the house.  You can see a roof has been added, along with doors and windows.  Other structural modifications are being made as well.  It's still very much a work in progress, but I was happy that someone is bringing this home back to life again.

The house has been in the same family for 160 years, and the current family members are restoring it.  More information about the history and restoration can found in this article.


  1. That's wonderful someone is restoring this old house.

  2. I've been monitoring the progress of this for a while now with mixed emotions. I'll be riding by it this weekend on my way to the barber in Stonington Borough.
