c. 1889 This Queen Anne home was one of the finest homes in the Prospect Hill Historic District, known as “the Hill” back in the day. This was in built in 1889 by Amos M. Hathaway, one of the overseers at Willimantic Linen, later the American Thread Company. Located right on the Willimantic River, this location was perfect for the mill complexes, important for the success of Windham Cotton on the west and Willimantic Linen Company, later the American Thread Company (ATCO), on the east. Some of the fine houses in the Prospect Hill Historic District were owned by supervisors at the mills, of which Hathway was, along with two other neighbors. While I cannot find a timeline, the house was abandoned for a time and the second photo here is from when it was in disrepair. Just love what has been done to this beauty to preserve it for eternity.
c. 1891. This home is located in the Prospect Hill Historic District, which overlooks the Willimantic River to the south and the Natchaug River to the east. Most of the homes in this area were built after the Civil War and most completed by the end of the Victorian era, with nearly 460 houses standing by 1910. The area has one of the highest concentrations of Victorian architecture in the state, including Second Empire and Queen Anne styles, Italianate, Stick, Shingle, and Eastlake styles. The "Hill" as the neighborhood was once known, also contained one of the largest concentrations of entrepreneurial talent in the region. While there were no extremes of wealth or poverty, it was home to a substantial middle class, at first, mostly descendants of old Yankee stock. The upper echelons of this class, the builders of the "mini mansions" on the more desirable streets, were managers and owners of mills and stores, commodity wholesalers, financiers and bankers, and educated professionals, and a number held elected or appointed local and state offices. Willimantic evolved as a fully-fledged industrial city specializing in the manufacture of textiles and thread, as well as a regional hub for the railroads. Major mill complexes along the Willimantic River were erected for Windham Cotton on the west and Willimantic Linen Company, later the American Thread Company (ATCO), on the east. (livingplaces.com)
Looks straight out of a fairy tale. On the outskirts of the city, but it is so beautifully surrounded by mature trees and a lovely front lawn. I marvel at stone houses, imagining the many, many hours it took to built, stone by stone. * * * * * * #newhavenct #newhaven #gscia #archidaily #househunting #archi_ #archi_logie #arc -hi_daily #casacaserios2 #casacaserios #houseportrait #houseoftheday #houses_phototrip #houses_ofthe_world #oldhouselove #oldhousecharm #architecturelovers #total_houses #curbed #beautifulhouseoldandnew #lovelyoldhomes #housesofinstagram #house_of_beauty_ #postitfortheaesthetic #newenglandfineliving #igersconnecticut #bhghome #stonehouse #ig_connecticut #fallleaves
c. 1811 “The Alexander Jack, Jr. House is a two-and-a-half-story structure, built c.1811, with a central interior chimney and a gable roof. The house is built on the four-bay plan that was so popular from 1750 until 1820, and was originally located on Levin Street (now Memorial Boulevard-West). The Newport Restoration Foundation (NRF) purchased the house in 1969, moved it that same year to Mill Street, and then restored the house in 1970. The restoration of this house is one of the first completed by NRF.” (newportrestoration.org) * * * * * * #rhodeisland #newportri #archidaily #househunting #archi_ #archi_logie #arc -hi_daily #casacaserios2 #casacaserios #houseportrait #houseoftheday #houses_phototrip #houses_ofthe_world #oldhouselove #oldhousecharm #architecturelovers #total_houses #curbed #beautifulhouseoldandnew #lovelyoldhomes #postitfortheaesthetic #ig_rhodeisland #postcardperfect #igersrhodeisland #historicpreservation #beautifulhome
c. 1850 Love when beautiful, historic buildings, once single family homes, are preserved and cared for by businesses. This lovely mansard roof beauty is one such example.

c. 1850 The Crandall House is in The Point neighborhood, which has one of the highest concentrations of colonial houses in the United States. During the American Revolution, around the time of the Battle of Rhode Island, homes in this area houses were occupied by British and French forces. A lovely park, right on the harbor, was created from Fort Greene, a former military battery from the War of 1812. * * * * * * #newportri #archidaily #househunting #archi_ #archi_logie #arc -hi_daily #casacaserios2 #casacaserios #houseportrait #houseoftheday #houses_phototrip #houses_ofthe_world #oldhouselove #oldhousecharm #architecturelovers #total_houses #curbed #beautifulhouseoldandnew #lovelyoldhomes #postitfortheaesthetic #ig_rhodeisland #postcardperfect #mansardmonday #igersrhodeisland
