Samuel Thorpe House (1701)

October 25th, 2017 Posted in Colonial, Houses, Wallingford

The saltbox house at 220 Thorpe Avenue in Wallingford may date to as early as 1701. At that time the property was owned by Samuel Thorpe, one of the town’s first settlers. He may have been a nonconformist who chose to live away from the center of town. The fact that the house is possibly old enough to be one of the three oldest houses in town was only recently discovered by a realtor in 2015.
