Susanna Halley House

This house evokes the Federal Era in its styling and proportions, but may be called a New England farmhouse due to the wrap around porches. New England farmhouses were often less ornamented than their in-town neighbors, but still contained stylistic elements such as decorated entries and rooflines with crown moulding. Farmhouses often began as center hall colonials. As the farm and the family grew, additions and outbuildings were added nearby or in some cases directly to the house. This created the beautiful rambling farmhouses we see in the landscape. Exterior porches tied these structures together visually as well as served as a buffer from the weather.
