      One of the two oldest houses in East Haddam, and one of the five oldest homes in Connecticut (CT Historic/Tourism Commission), this saltbox was built in 1690 by Samuel Emmons, an original settler of the area known as "Little Haddam." It served as a tavern first in 1727 and from time to time until the mid-to-late 1800s and then became a residence. An upstairs room, known as "The Alice Room" is frescoed with illustrations from "Alice in Wonderland" in 1937 by the famous American painter, W. Langdon Kihn, who lived in the home. Other highlights include multiple working fireplaces, bee hive and separate smoking ovens, exposed hand hewn beams, original paneling, and mellow wide board floors. Recently renovated and expanded using premium materials and craftsmanship, the house stands ready to embrace the future while retaining the patina of the past. A family room addition with vaulted ceilings and built-in entertainment center, chef's kitchen and remodeled baths along with a new warm air and central air system are just some of the improvements. A heated in-ground pool with terraces, pool house and pergola make summer living a joy. Sited on nearly 7 acres, the sweeping lawns, gardens and a boxwood par-terre garden are stunning. In 2016, a four bay carriage barn with guest quarters was completed. This home will delight anyone seeking charm, warmth and period authenticity but also requiring modern amenities. It's close to East Haddam village, home of the Goodspeed Opera House.
