Cory House // c.1859

I stumbled upon this Greek Revival farmhouse located on one of many dirt roads in Landgrove, Vermont and had to snap a few photos! I couldn’t find much on the history of the house besides the fact it was listed on an 1869 atlas as the property of an “I. Cory”. The five-bay farmhouse has an elaborate door treatment and bold corner pilasters all perched behind a historic stone wall. The house telescoped outward with additions, eventually connecting it to what is now a garage. This farmhouse purchased in the 20th century by John A. Brown, who worked as Dean of Students at Princeton University.

    Wow – that’s quite a house! Glad to see one from Vermont – if you’re ever in Manchester, Vt., look up my ancestor’s tavern – the Weller Tavern at 3116 Main Street in Manchester. It was built in 1774 by Eliakim Weller and restored in the 1960s I believe. Eliakim Weller’s son, Asa Weller, came to Canada c1790 and founded the Village of Carrying Place, ON where his brick house (1808) and tavern (1810) still stand.

      Ah man! I avoided Manchester VT because I knew swarms of tourists would be there, so I opted for Dorset instead! More to come of this area
