951 Longmeadow Street (#59 The Captain David Burt House -1725)

One of the oldest houses in Longmeadow, it was built in 1725 by Captain David Burt. The east wing was added in the early nineteenth century. The house was originally a four room center chimney farm house. Because of its construction, exterior lines and low ceilings, it is considered to be one of Longmeadow's oldest houses. In the mid-1800's, fire destroyed the center chimney. At that time the chimney was removed and a staircase was built in its place.
