4 Agawam Ave

At 4 Agawam Avenue in the Borough of Fenwick in Old Saybrook is a Queen Anne cottage that was once located on the waterfront in Fenwick. It was built in 1885 for Henry P. Morgan of Brooklyn, who owned a large dry goods business, and was moved to its current location (4 Agawam Avenue) around 1901 by Ernest Williams, who was in the building supply business. His daughter Dorothy married Everett Francis of Middletownn. You can read more about the cottage in Marion Hepburn Grant’s The Fenwick Story (Connecticut Historical Society, 1974), page 170.
