Last week we asked "Where Is This House?" and all four who commented correctly guessed that the house was located somewhere on North Main St.

Kelly Hartzog seemed to know the house well since it appears from the following comment that she has been in the house: "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."

The official answer from the Noah Webster House & West Hartford Historical Society is: "The Whitman house is located at 208 North Main Street. It was built in 1764 and in 1807 an addition was added to the north end of the house in order to accommodate the growing family. Three generations of the Whitman family lived in the house."

Perhaps, South Quaker Lane and Park Road... a long time ago.

I agree with Ms Monahan! Karen
