    The home of Jacob Trussell (1833-1910) for about 40 years. He didn’t build it but bought it in 1872 and lived out his days there. He was quite a guy – a farmer then a Civil War officer and contractor on the Pacific Railroad. After the railroad was completed he came back to Vermont, farmed and raised his family here, practiced law, delivered the mail, served in the legislature, a few other things.

    The vernacular Greek Revival house, from about 1850 I’d guess, doesn’t look to have changed much except for some mid-century updates. Needs a little fixing here and there. Plenty of room for books and all kinds of stuff in the barns, lots of land for gardens and fruit trees and running the dog. Pretty nice!

      I think 1850 or so–1850-1865–is exactly right. From the outside you might think it was considerably earlier, but this is a late cape, with a hint of Greek Revival as in the two-long-panel doors and vernacular triangular fireplace pediment.

    Does the window in picture 23 qualify as a witch window?
