Bloomfield, CT
This door photographed by Bill Owens is the entrance to the Capt. Oliver Filley House in Bloomfield Connecticut a.k.a. Wintonbury. The Captain Oliver Filley House, one of the more significant historic sites remaining in Bloomfield, was built in 1834, one year before the incorporation of the town. Captain Filley had the house, an unusual example of an all-stone Greek Revival with brownstone corbeling and lintels, built for his son Jay Filley. It is being restored through a partnership between the Wintonbury Historical Society and the Town of Bloomfield, and will be a museum, cultural center, research library, and office for the Wintonbury Historical Society.
