878 Longmeadow Street (#52 The Stebbins-Hammett House -1795)

This house was built for Benjamin Stebbins and his bride, Lucy Colton, around 1795. The house was originally all brick and was painted red. When the late J. S. Carr bought the home, he intended to take the house down and build anew. However, his wife fell in love with the fine old wood and chimney cupboard in the north room. Only the two lower front rooms were saved. Their brick walls are part of the original house, while the remainder of the house is wood from the later period.
