    Build date given was 1800 which would be too early, this is 1820’s-1850’s, at least IMO.

    A house that’s held a lot of life. The barn is spectacular — inside and outside. I’ve never seen silos that size in my life! Got to be award-winners.

    Is there a “newel post” site where I can learn more about what shapes at what time periods? I had never thought about it before. Thanks. 🙂

      I’m not sure there is. There are books that help figure out styles and one that includes what the interior style would have been for that style. The problem comes is when the exterior says one thing but the interior says another because of updates. That’s why I suggest learning both the interior and exteriors.

      The Elements of Style by Stephen Calloway and Elizabeth Cromley shows the interiors (much cheaper used than new, this is also an older edition but just as good as the new one): https://amzn.to/2Qy642b

      I read that book every 1-2 months. 😀 They also have a Kindle version too.

    Easy enough to research; Hartford property records state 1850 for the build date of 220 W. Gilson Ave.: http://gis.vgsi.com/hartfordvt/Parcel.aspx?pid=3199

      Thanks. I searched yesterday for a better build date. I suspect “1850” is a default build date when they don’t know for sure, it’s done when there are no records when a home was really built but they know about the time. But it’s closer to the real build date than “1800”.

    When they say the barn is massive, I didn’t get it until I looked at the satellite view. IT’s HUUUUUUUUUUUUUGE!

    I love the farmhouse. (Huge empty barns like that give me the creeps, though!) The house and gardens look so well-loved! I’d love to fix it up, without changing anything, except removing carpeting. Wish there were more photos of bedrooms and bathrooms. The pantry is a dream!!! It must be cold in the winter, but wonderful and breezy in the summer! What a wonderful home!

    The barn and silos are magnificent! It’s a very attractive home too. Love the rusty roof.
