Justin Smith-Sweet House, Old Lyme, Connecticut:
Located at 54 Lyme Street is a home built in 1710. It’s an example of Three-quarter Cape Cod style architecture. The house was saved from demolition and restored by Brad and Gerri Sweet, who discovered that the rafters dated back to before 1700. The house has had many owners including a slaveholder named Samuel Mather who sold it to Nathan Tinker in 1784. After World War I, it was the residence of Matilda Brown, an artist of the Old Lyme art colony.
