Caldwell Parsonage

Caldwell Parsonage dates to 1730 and was home to Rev. James Caldwell, a Presbyterian minister and patriot cause during the Revolutionary War. In 1780 during the Battle of Connecticut Farms, Caldwell’s wife Hannah was killed in the living room by British soldiers, and one year later, Caldwell was shot by a sentry. Now the parsonage is a house museum, and is said to be haunted by Lady Caldwell.
