      I was hoping you’d post this one because of its fascinating history.
      The original small house was built by the town founder Jedediah Sanger in 1790 for his daughter Sarah, and it’s known as the Sally Eames house. In 1829 she inherited wealth – from land, an iron furnace, and grist, lumber and cotton mills, and built the larger house attached to the old. The linked article says that the columns are solid trees, the siding is handmade and knot-free, and there are hidey holes in the stairs for the family silver. Sally had a great party here for the entire town when the house was finished, and she lived here until her death in 1860. During “restoration” in the 1950’s, most of the previously altered original structure was lost.
      The state survey adds that the unusual trim and carved detail is similar to that found at the Miller mansion at Rutger Park in Utica, the home of political bigwig Roscoe Conkling. That house was designed by Philip Hooker, a great early architect who designed a new state capitol in 1809, and other noteworthy buildings. #Pedigree

        Jim H – Thanks for this background. I live in this area – New Hartford is only a mile from here, but am not from this area, so know only some bits of the histories involved, between Oneida County, the city of Utica, & its nearby villages. There is a Sanger Avenue in New Hartford a cple of blocks from this house, and SE of here is Sangerfield. This particular house has always seemed to me to be a stand-out on Oxford Road – made more prominent by being large & perched up above & far back from the street, and for years after I first moved here, there was always a candle in each of the house’s windows at Christmastime.

        See that stick next to the fire hydrant in the 3rd pic? How many peeps know what it is? ?

        Are those windows surrounding the front door in the entry part of Sally’s improvements? Also those mantels downstairs look 19th c as well. What all is original 18th c?

    This home is remarkably similar to the ‘Bow and Arrow’ House in Alfred, Maine. If the porch, really a piazza, around this home is contemporary with its construction, perhaps there is some sort of family, business or a visit to the other that connects them.

    This federal style home is a cut above the ones I’m used to seeing: wrap-around porch, stained glass in entry and ornate fireplaces. Very well preserved. Beautiful home and landscape.

    That is the classiest way I have ever seen to turn a keyboard into a piano. Somebody went to a lot of custom work and trouble to achieve that.
