1183 Longmeadow Street (#66 The Ashael Colton House -1790)

This house was built in 1790 by Ashael Colton. In 1917 the house was moved from the west to the east side of the street. The southeast section split apart and now stands on the next lot.  During the 1930's this house was appointed as the Transfer House on the streetcar route between Springfield and Enfield.  Of special note is the magnificent antique barn behind the house.
