And here we are in CT's Quiet Corner, across Furnace Brook from artsy downtown Stafford Springs, very soon Westford Avenue will turn to woods and country as you climb out of the Willimantic Valley. The Second Empire house was built in 1864 and retains high ceilings in the parlor and hallways. Perfect. An O.H. Bailey & Company 1878 "bird's–eye view" lithograph I've seen shows the house with young trees recently planted at regular intervals up the street. A tree trimmer for the power company tells me the American Elm out front still appears healthy. It's the last one.
