We are indebted to Christiane Hyde Citron of Denver, Colorado for the photos featured here. They are of what was Solomon Stoddard Mead's home. Until this past decade the house stood at the corner of Riversville and Cliffdale roads in North Greenwich. The house was demolished.
We were delighted to receive these images of what was Solomon Stoddard Mead's home (built circa 1795 by Benjamin Mead III) in North Greenwich.
Our thanks goes to Christiane Hyde Citron of Denver, Colorado for furnishing these. We are attempting to find the originals.
In one of her emails to us the artist is identified as Charles Courtney Curran. For some background of the artist please go to this link and this one, too.
