Dr. Daniel Sheldon, who was once described as having “long held a very high rank among physicians of this state,” began his career in Washington (CT) and later settled in Litchfield. His house in that town, built in 1785 on North Street, has a mansard roof and an uncommon design for eighteenth-century Connecticut houses. The house was lived in until 1889 by his daughter, Lucy Sheldon Beach, who had attended the Litchfield Female Academy and lived to age of 100.
