Judson House, home of the Stratford Historical Society
Built circa 1750 by Capt. David Judson on the site of his great-grandfather's
1639 stone house, Judson House is a fine example of Georgian achitecture
with its impressive broken scroll pediment entry. It is furnished
with period pieces of Stratford origin. The beautiful paneled "west
roome" contains an early piano which belonged to William Samuel
Johnson, framer of the U.S. Constitution, and the second president
of Columbia University.
An outstanding collection of Chinese porcelain
is displayed in the dining room as well as a circa 1750 Crown Great
Chair (Heart and Crown), a form unique to this area.
The Judson House had to be renovated with new lighting, electrical panel.
