Last week's question asked "What Is Located Where This House Once Stood?" and nearly all of the commenters expressed sadness that this magnificent home is no longer standing.
Lisa Petersen wrote, "I think this fabulous house was on Prospect Avenue between Farmington and Fern right next to what was Oxford School for girls (is now Bristow Middle school). I remember drawing a house that looked a lot like this for art class after walking down the street. I was heartbroken when this was torn down. I think at first it was for a parking lot! Now there's a very similar looking building that is part of apartments there."
Amy Bergquist said it was called the Loomis Wooley House.
According to the Noah Webster House & West Hartford Historical Society, "This was the Loomis-Wooley house, once located on Prospect Avenue. The house was torn down in 1973 and in 2006 new townhouses were built on the property using some of the architectural features that had been used in the original house."
