Built for Oliver Wolcott, Sr. in 1754 on South Street in Litchfield, this is the town’s oldest surviving Georgian-style house. During the Revolutionary War, Wolcott was a member of the Continental Congress and a signer of the Declaration of Independence. He later served as Governor of Connecticut (1796-1797). The Colonial Revival wing was added in the 1890s.

    My husband and son are direct decendants of Oliver Wolcott, through my husband’s mother, whose maiden name was Wolcott. She has a very thick family bible, full of info. Cool stuff!
