Last week we has the perfect image for Christmas Eve! "Where Was This Tree?" was the question, and most of the guesses were absolutely correct. Amy Frey, Dorothy Stone, R.C. Pond, and Bob Cunningham all commented that the tree was on Goodman Green in the center of West Hartford.

The official answer from the Noah Webster House & West Hartford Historical Society is: "This Christmas tree once stood in Goodman Green in the center of town. It was presented to the town by the Sarah Whitman Hooker Chapter of the Daughters of the American Revolution on May 13, 1929."

I think this house is on Main Street and was recently sold or taken off the market.

206 North Main Street?

This looks like the Duffy Farm House located on North Main St in the 200 block about 8 houses north of where the brook passes under North Main St

208 North Main. I believe it was a Captain's home? It's been taken care of and is beautiful inside as well. I used to babysit there.
