Ashford, Connecticut is home to a very special 5-acre parcel of land. Originally part of a larger 60-acre estate, the property contains a house once used for 19th Century summer parties. Playing horseshoes and enjoying family gatherings were popular pastimes, proven by antiques, historical documents and photos found on site. From 1929 -1979, the home stood vacant, boarded up and quite forgotten, likely to avoid inheritance taxes. As the years passed, sheep were raised on the surrounding land. It seemed inevitable that the home was destined to eventually fall prey to a bulldozer.
