HPX January/February 2008 - The Holley-Williams House, 15 Millerton Road, Lakeville, CT

back to listings

The Holley-Williams House was built circa 1768 and is a fine example of Federal architecture.  Its past use as a museum (Salisbury Association) is ending and it sits on over 4 acres of land with barns, an ice house, outhouse and carriage house. The front portico with its Ionic columns leads into a wide entrance hall with a curving staircase, a downstairs parlor, an exhibit room, and the original keeping room. The dining room overlooks an old-fashioned walled garden.  Many architectural elements in the 1808 addition, such as the main entry door, door surround and fanlight, and interior woodwork, came from designs found in Asher Benjamin’s pattern books. The open space of the parcel consists primarily of gardens, located next to the house, and a field/orchard at the rear. Preservation restrictions are held by Historic New England.
