Will be Home of Ralph Brush, Descendant of Mead Family
With these associations, Mr. Bush was anxious to preserve the old homestead and so decided to take it over, move it to his own property and make it his future home. Some time ago, Mr. Brush acquired the late Judge R. Walsh property on Dearfield Drive, through which estate Grove Lane is a part.
|Dearfields, 8 Grove Lane in Greenwich. Date: December 6, 2015|
The house is being moved back by the way of Dearfield Drive to the site on Grove Lane and it will face toward the Post Road. Five generations have lived in the old homestead. The late Colonel Thomas A. Mead fought in the Revolutionary War and upon his death, his son Zophar Mead became the owner. When he died his daughter, the former Miss Bertha Mead, now Mrs. Norman T. Reynolds, inherited the old homestead, which she later sold to the Turnpike Corporation. The former site of the Mead homestead with land adjoining is retained by the Turnpike Corporation and it s planned to erect one or more buildings on the property containing stores and apartments, in the near future.
