Joseph S. Williams House (1899)

A sign on the house (now used as a real estate office) at 62 Greenmanville Avenue in Mystic (in Stonington) indicates that it was the home of Joseph S. Williams, yeoman, and was built in 1899. Joseph S. Williams was no doubt related to Joseph Stanton Williams, whose farm once dominated the eastern side of Greenmanville Avenue. In the 1890s, the farm was developed into an industrial area. The old Joseph S. Williams farmhouse, which stood on the hill east of what is now Mystic Seaport, later fell into disrepair and was burned in the 1950s.

    This Historic Building was once owned by my grandfather, Peter Thissen, a velvet weaver who worked at the Rossie Mill. The original number was 48 but is now 62. It was a duplex when my grandfather lived there. It is across the street from The Mystic Seaport.
