The 1678 Joshua Hempsted House is one of New England's oldest and best documented dwellings. Joshua Hempsted lived here his whole life, filling many roles, including farmer, judge, gravestone carver, shipwright, and father of nine children left motherless by his wife's death in 1716. The diary Hempsted kept for nearly 50 years prior to his own death in 1758, is full of sometimes meaty, sometimes mudane details of daily life in colonial Connecticut.
