Joseph Adams House (1795)

June 10th, 2017 Posted in Federal Style, Houses, Wethersfield

Built in 1795, or perhaps earlier, the house at 76 Prospect Street in Wethersfield was originally the home of Joseph Adams (1755-1801), who operated a mill. Shortly before his death he married Mary Forbes, widow of Leonard Dix, and moved into the Dix House on Wolcott Hill Road. The Adams House was then occupied by his son, Joseph Adams, Jr. (1783-1834), who kept a general store on Main Street.
