The Milestone House-68 East Main Street is known as the Milestone House because Ben Franklin, as the General Postmaster, marked the house 25 miles from New Haven, CT. Built in 1730, the Milestone House represents true New England history. Yale University's first classes were taught across the street by Abraham Pierson. His pupil, Jared Eliot, succeeded him and lived in the Milestone House. His friendship with Ben Franklin was recognized internationally. The Milestone homestead was exceptionally renovated in 2015 with all wood restored to maintain its rich history. Custom American chestnut cabinets and moldings enrich the extraordinary craftsmanship. Upgrades have made the home energy efficient too. The extremely well preserved Milestone home is an example of early Colonial architecture which has its original post and beam construction, including Pumpkin Pine floor boards on the second floor. The massive main chimney consists of 4 fireplaces in total. The main fireplace includes a Beehive oven, celebrates authentic Colonial living. There is an outdoor fireplace on the large back patio. The property enjoys views of the Indian River, which is an inlet of Long Island Sound, with a land preserve abutting the property to the river. There's a large barn-style garage with heated studio above, great for artist/office/ exercise space . Prime location on Main St. Walk to Town Beach/Marinas & downtown amenities.
