The Home of Nathaniel Tuttle

Woodbury, Connecticut

The Woodbury Town records show that in the 1690’s Nathaniel Tuttle "pitched upon’’ the homelot where this house now stands. The late Fred Kelly, who examined it, estimated the date of its erection as ahout 1690, but that is probably too early. Nathaniel’s son Fphraim Tuttle was living there in 1709 and had been married in 1706. Nathaniel left this property to Fphraim in his will, so Nathaniel may have built it for his son when .Ephraim was married, or Fphraim built it himself at about that time.

Ephraim Tuttle sold the place to Hezekiah Culver in 1735, and it finally came into the possession of Dr. Daniel Munn, who lived there until his death in 1763.  His son John inherited it and sold it to David Mallory, a Revolutionary soldier. From Mallory, Solomon and Aaron Sherman bought it as young men in 1788. Aaron soon sold his share to Solomon and moved up the hill to what is now the W. J. Pape place. Solomon Sherman in his later years sold it to his son Cyrus. From the heirs of Cyrus it came to Henry Traver, from whose heirs the Sinnotts bought it in 1929.

The house is a typical salt box with plank walls, stone chimney, three large fireplaces with ovens at the hack of two, and much original wainscot. It seems to have been changed relatively little inside, though a porch was added on the front about fifty years ago. ‘[he house is now painted white, but at one time was red.

Cyrus Sherman’s joiner’s shop is still standing on the property, and the east end of the barn seems very old. A near-by foundation may be that of an earlier house or of the slave-house which is known to have existed.
