Facility:Hempsted Houses
Description:Joshua Hempsted's home was built in 1678. A diarist and shipbuilder-farmer, Joshua described everyday life in 18th century New London for nearly 50 years, and documented the evolution of his father's 1678 house to nine Hempsted generations. Adjacent is a stone house (1759) built by Joshua's grandson Nathaniel. Family artifacts in both houses recall life in one of New England's leading seaports.
