I found a website called Historic Buildings Of Connecticut and lo and behold, under Stonington, many posts on the houses in the walking tour. I’ve added links to the house numbers when the house photographed was profiled in the Historic Buildings blog. Even the hippie house that oops, was a Baptist Church. 🙂
Location location location: Stonington Borough.
We have several favorites. Can you guess our top three?
With no further commentary necessary, I present gorgeous antique homes.
And it’s backside and garden gate. Back definitely an addition. Meh. Garden gate, A+.
Two attached houses in reverse paint schemes
The attention to detail, extraordinary.
Then there was this, not sure what it is but it seems like a big old hippie house. Don’t think it was ever a church but it’s huge and um, different.
Update: Come to find out, this was The First Baptist Church of Stonington Borough
We stopped a local and asked if antique homes that wanted to renovate had to go through the historical society. No, he said because Stonington is not an historic district. Remarkably though, history seems cherished here. That’s a good thing.
