House

Date Made

1823

Summary

This house was constructed about 1823 in New Haven, Connecticut. The floor plan was devised by the Webster family in consultation with a local builder. The home was arranged to accommodate two elderly people who found large, drafty rooms and stair climbing a hardship. Noah was nearly sixty five when he moved in, bringing his wife Rebecca, four of his seven children, and a free black servant.

House

Date Made

circa 1835

Summary

Henry Carroll owned this tidewater Maryland house in the decades before and after the Civil War. Its form was common in this warm, humid climate -- one room deep with porches to invite cooling breezes. In 1860, Carroll raised tobacco and wheat as cash crops on his 700-acre plantation. Sixty-five enslaved African Americans provided the skill and labor that supported the Carroll family's comfortable life.
