Resting along the Connecticut shoreline town of Stonington, CT, lies an antique Colonial home with a rich background of prominent past ownership involving both a captain of militia in the Revolutionary War and a privateer in the War of 1812. Originally constructed in 1749, the refurbished residence once served as home to Nathan Crary, who is best remembered for his transportation of salt peter, which was used in gunpowder, to Windham to protect it from falling into British hands. Local historians believe that a heart-shaped cutout on an inside door of Crary’s home was a Patriot’s symbol, and derived from the first Purple Heart badge...

Local historians believe that a heart-shaped cutout on an inside door of Crary’s home was a Patriot’s symbol, and derived from the first Purple Heart badge for bravery created by General George Washington. Twenty years later, his son Jesse was also heroic, gathering fellow Mystic River seamen to recapture his sloop, the Fox, by overpowering a prize crew from blockading British warships. Although lovingly restored to meet today’s modern comforts, the home has not forgotten its past, as incredible historic details still remain throughout. Upon venturing inside, one will find painted and engraved names of other past owners, and beloved antique features such as iron implements made in the former forge on the premises, displayed near some of the home’s six fireplaces.
