    I want to know more about this gorgeous house! I know there’s a story here.

    Great Italianate house. Looks like it needs a new roof, based on the wallpaper. I wonder what the view is like from the lovely hill it sits atop.

    This is the hamlet of Brookfield NY, another little spot misplaced by the Postal Service by sending their mail through a nearby facility:

    The longtime resident here (and likely the builder) was Joseph Lamb (1804-1890):
    Brookfield Courier – Wednesday, June 11, 1890
    JOSEPH LAMB
    Mr. Joseph Lamb, whose death occurred at his residence in this village on Sunday morning last, was one of our oldest and best-known citizens, having passed the eighty-eighth milestone of life’s journey on the day of his death. Mr. Lamb was the son of Captain Asa Lamb, a hero of the Revolutionary War, and last of a family of ten children. He was a life-long resident of Brookfield, his death occurring within a few miles of the place where he was born. In his early manhood he followed the plow and tilled the soil, with untiring industry accumulating a competency sufficient for all his declining years which have been passed in this village. The deceased was twice married. His first wife was Polly, daughter of William Greene of this town, who died some twelve or fifteen years ago; the second union was with Miss Laura Briggs, who still survives.
    The funeral services were held at his late residence Tuesday afternoon, conducted by Rev. A. Cheeseman. The remains were buried beside his first wife in the village cemetery.

    This house deserves an owner who will treat it and love it like Joseph Lamb obviously did … and the price, wow…not prepared to change citizenship but I would sure love to honour this house, and I pray the new owner is capable to wear Mr. Lamb’s shoes.

    This home has a lot to offer. Some TLC, and this place would really shine.
