Frederick Colony House // c.1885

When you look up Queen Anne architecture on Google, this house in Wilton, NH should pop up! The Frederick Colony House was built around 1885 for the mill-owner who built a large cotton mill (last post) in town at the same time. Frederick Colony (1850-1925) was from a prominent textile and cotton mill-owning family based in Massachusetts and Keene, New Hampshire. Colony purchased land along the Souhegan River and built a new mill, there to make his own fortune, and that he did! The Frederick Colony House remains as one of the best-preserved homes in Wilton, and recently sold. Those interiors!

    I have always thought of Wilton as just an offbeat town and had no idea the number of buildings of architectural interest. Thank you for the education.

      Thank you! I try and stop at the off-beat or smaller towns that people know of and never really visit. There are gems in every corner of New England! Wilton Center is even cooler, stay tuned!
