    New Canaan, CT place built in 1735 up for DEMO!

    Folks, I'm nowhere close to New Canaan, CT but heard about what might be a "golden" opportunity to hunt a property that seriously dates back. Someone here might even want to purchase the old house that the owner wants to demo. Here's the link.

    I hope someone can talk to the owner and work a deal to recover some of the artifacts that are probably hiding on the property

    An unidentified coin is a piece of metal. An identified coin is a piece of history.

    Back in the 50s and 60s we lived about a mile from that house (on Fox Run Road). No doubt the grounds would be a prime MD area if not already searched. The stone fences that still surround many of the homes were placed there by the first settlers who cleared the land for planting.
    New Canaan was first called Canaan Parish (in 1731). If this home is really from 1735, it is one of the first built--and one of, if not the last to stand, from that decade. The town wasn't incorporated until 1801; meanwhile the residents were actually living within the town boundaries of either Norwalk or Stamford.

    Blaze,
    I miss the way it used to be; a small town, minimal crime and friendly people. I still miss the changing colors of fall and the snow at Christmas time. Just before Christmas the townspeople would gather on a hillside on "God's Little Acre" and sing Christmas carols.
    I traded that in for Southern California 54 years ago and have no regrets.
