Samuel Pellet House // 1752

Located just north of the town green in Canterbury, Connecticut, this Georgian home looks much like it did when it was built in 1752. Built by Samuel Pellet for his second wife Hannah Underwood, the home features a central chimney, double door entry flanked by fluted pilasters, and large multi-pane windows. Not visible from the image, the home also is a salt box in form. According to the Canterbury Historical Society, Sarah Harris, Prudence Crandall’s first black student worked as a servant in this house and is believed to have resided there as well.
