Built in 1846 from red brick, the Thomas Stevenson House is nestled in a park-like setting with a fenced-in backyard just off The Green. The original house was joined over the years with its summer kitchen and a two-room schoolhouse, creating a fanciful floorplan that includes a butler’s pantry and a mother-in-law suite with a sitting room. Faithfully restored with multiple fireplaces, the home is ready for the 21st century with a new heating system.
