Built on Hartford Avenue in Wethersfield in 1775 by Josiah Buck, Sr. for his son and daughter-in-law, Daniel Buck and Sarah Saltonstall, the sister of Silas Deane‘s second wife, Elizabeth Saltonstall Evards. The Daniel Buck House is across the street from the home of Daniel’s brother, Josiah Buck, Jr., who married Deane’s sister, Hannah. The Daniel Buck House is still in the same family. The Buck property contains many original eighteenth century outbuildings and is known as the Old Buck Farm. Now a center for art, the historic barns are home to the Wethersfield Academy for the Arts. Additional land that was once part of the Buck family farm along the Wethersfield Cove are now preserved by the Great Meadows Conservation Trust.

    If anyone has ever been to this place, they will know that it is absolutely beautiful! We are so excited to see a non-profit art academy set up on the location.

    I have a document dated April 9, 1789 by Minuteman Daniel Buck. It is a receipt from Oliver Wolcott Comptroller of Public Accounts Hartford. It concerns the payment in Stae Notes for the debt of the Revolution. Daniel Buck Lexington Alarm List Wethersfield showing 6 days of service.
    Is this YOUR Daniel Buck?
