Chidsey-Linsley House, East Haven, Connecticut:
Built circa 1750, and renovated in 1790, this colonial cape is one of three architectural cornerstones of East Haven Green. The house has small fixed-pane windows and displays flared overhangs, a characteristic of Dutch influence. Around the time of its 1790 construction, East Haven was still rebuilding from British raids during the Revolution in which many earlier structures had burned. The Chidsey and Linsley families were among the most prominent surnames in East Haven during the colonial era.
