Richard Mansfield House, Ansonia, Connecticut:
At 35 Jewett Street is a turn of the 17th century Saltbox style house. The Colonial home was likely built before 1700 and was purchased by Reverend Richard Mansfield, a native of New Haven in 1748. Mansfield was raised a Congregationalist, but converted to the Church of England, then established a mission in the Town of Derby. Mansfield fled during the American Revolution due to his Loyalist leanings, but returned and continued to serve in the local Episcopal church until his death in 1820. The house was moved across the street from its original location in 1926 to make way for a church.
