Thomas Griswold III built the house for two of his sons, John and Ezra, circa 1774, on land that had been in the Griswold family since Thomas Griswold II moved from Wethersfield in 1695.

This house is a classic Colonial saltbox, built in 1774. The house is furnished in the style of the early nineteenth century, representing the period of George and Nancy Griswold's occupancy.
